A super moon, lunar eclipse: opportunities like this don’t come that often. So, I set my alarm.
At 2.00 am it was looking great. The beautiful, bright, white moon was still shining down from a clear sky. I rolled back into bed and dreamt of an amazing experience to come.
3.oo am prompted the gentle melody of my phone alarm, into action. We sleep with the window blinds up and I could see that the beautiful stars had been stolen: by the blue/grey clouds. The moon was no more.
I returned, sulkily and reluctantly to my bed and had uneasy dreams of a blood-red moon that mocked me, from high above the cloud cover.
So, that was my experience of this particular event. I believe it happens in another 30 years time. By then, if I am still around I will be an old lady. My daughter will practically be a pensioner and my grandson will be around the age that she is now, quite possibly with children of his own.
I wonder whether we will see it then?
How was it for you? Did you manage to witness this fantastic event?
Thanks for visiting.
Until the next time.
