"SUPER BLOOD MOON, MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 27th 2015"
I spent some time outside last night to see
the Super Moon going through an eclipse at the same time.
Given that the next time this is likely to happen is in 2033
and that I might find myself feeble and blind by that time,
if not dead,
given my family history,
I decided to give it a shot.
The weather was nice and the sky clear of all clouds,
for a change...
I set up the camera on its tripod and grabbed the remote control,
waiting with a moderate dose of excitement.
this is not the first super moon I see this summer
but the moon has always fascinated me.
So there I was,
staring at the moon
as it slowly rose up behind the bridge
and climbing up and up,
until the shadow of our planet started creeping up across the moon's surface.
the shadow kept eating up the shiny disk until near everything was gone,
leaving the moon all dressed in somber red,
ready for a satanic ritual of some kind.
There was definitely something in the air
as my cats were acting up inside...
And that was that!!
Since I have the attention span of a gnat,
I decided to go back inside and not watch the reverse effect happen,
leaving the show at half-time.
I considered having seen the best part
and was content with that picture I took.
It may not be of the same caliber as NASA,
but it is enough to suggest why this tiny orb in the sky
has always been a fascination to Mankind.
I never [or ever so rarely] remember my dreams,
but if I did dream last night,
pretty sure it involved a red moon,
The cats are quiet, now!!
