...and saw the full moon through the bare tree branches become a tiny sliver of orange early this morning.
I know I’ve seen at least one other lunar eclipse, but this one is definitely the first one to coincide with winter solstice, and I don’t remember the moon being orange before. (Maybe that 43 Things orange banner of doom was more appropriate than anyone knew.) 2 years ago
I wanted so badly to see the last one, but just my luck I fell asleep from studying for an exam and missed it. cries I’m crossing my fingers on the next one. -4 years ago

A hunter’s moon is a lot better.
With the Lunar eclipse, the moon is orange and high up in the sky. Just a teensy, tiny spec.
A hunter’s moon is close to the ground, and is HUGE. You can see all the craters and everything very easily, w/out binoculars or anything. 5 years ago
Thanks to Schweffy alerting me as it was beginning, I was able to see the lunar eclipse. It looked really cool. The moon looked red and even purple at one point. I don’t think I have ever had this experience before and I’m glad to have had it now :) 5 years ago
Last one until December, 2010! I am so excited that I was able to see it. Photographing it was tough without a tripod, but I got a few shots as it was progressing. Our bitter cold but clear night was perfect for visibility, even in town.
The moon was a lovely shade of orange with a bright white rim right before the total eclipse began. I think that was my favorite point. 5 years ago
I just saw the lunar eclipse with some GREAT luck! It’s been cloudy all day, and I went to my astronomy class lab tonight and everyone was disappointed because we were sure we wouldn’t see it. We were watching an astronomy movie when my teacher announced that he saw a break in the clouds.
We quickly grabbed bionoculors and set up telescopes outside. We got to watch the end half and it looked awesome! 5 years ago
