  1. Red Moon

    North America is getting ready for a total lunar eclipse on Febuary 20th. The moon is expected to turn red. I have only witnessed this phenominon once before and I am looking forward to seeing it.

  2. A while back my home burned down in a wildfire. I remember wondering what I was going to do, where I was going to stay.

    I looked out above the horizon and through the smoke there was this blood-red full moon rising. It looked false in the sky. Scary.:(

    Matched the mood.:(
     
  3. Not really Christian, but it's a cute song.
     
  4. Instead of a red moon I saw grey clouds.:eek:
     
  5. I was able to see it... it was cool, but not red. It lasted a total of 3 hours from start to finish.
     
  6. It was absolutely glorious....

    It had a constellation that we have never seen before. I will try to show how it was:

    The moon was the biggest O. One of the stars was called Regulus and the other constellation was Gemini. I do not know what the upper star or planet was but it was very strange. It wasn't exactly like this but it's as close as I can get. It was also tipped to about a 10 degree angle to the right...
    The first thing I thought of is that it looked like a cross coming to earth!
    We have seen some pretty amazing things in the sky in our lifetimes but this was without a doubt the most amazing!
     
  7. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's moon viewing! Just kidding....it truly was spectacular. It was not red RED.....but it was more like a brownish orange.....truly cool.
     
  8. I saw it. The planet was Saturn, the star Regulus, and obviously the constellation Gemini. :) It was very peachy, reddish, ashy like color. It was a lot bigger, probably because it is closer to the Earth than another eclipse a few years back.
     
  9. I repent! LOL!:)

    I have seen that happen once before and I agree it was not a true red.
