Blood Moon rises over the ocean off Brisbane, Australia

‘Blood Moon’ Rises Over Brisbane, Australia

While today’s ‘blood Moon’ lunar eclipse occurred in the middle of Monday night for people in the United States, here in Australia the eclipse rose in the east – over the ocean for me here in Brisbane – right on the stroke of sunset on Tuesday evening. We took the kids down to the pier with a camera and tripod and grabbed a few images, including the one above. Bonus points for this shot, because it includes the star Spica (above the Moon) and the planet Mars (out to the left). Did you get clear skies and the opportunity to walk outside and take a look?
