Blood moon.

In the religious milieu in which I was raised in West Texas, a common belief was that a blood red moon would precede the Second Coming.  I gave up that notion many years ago, but I have always wanted to see a blood moon.  I got my chance when such a moon recently appeared about 3:00 a.m.   I took a few photos using a 50 mm lens.  The resolution is not real good but you do get an idea of how it looked from my porch.  The celestial object in the lower right corner is Jupiter.

The next blood moon is scheduled for October. After that, who knows, maybe the Apocalypse with its awesome photo ops. 🙂
