January 31st brought us a celestial event to remember. Skies were completely clear on the Mendonoma coast. Photographer Paula Power took photos of the event. Here is the Blood Moon, the full moon in a lunar eclipse.
It was amazing to see the stars so vibrant during the eclipse. Paula captured some of that night-time magic.
Paula then photographed the moon as the eclipse was finishing.
It was quite an experience to witness this event. Fun fact: the second full moon in a month is called a Blue Moon. That doesn't occur too often, hence the expression, "Once in a blue moon."
I thank Paula for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
