We got up at “O-Dark Thirty” and we took the Jeep up to the top of our favorite spot to watch the sunset. It’s a nice sized hill… pretty darn close to being called a mountain. You need a 4 wheel to get up to the top or you can hike it. So at that hour… plus I had camera “stuff” …we drove up!
Here is the first of the Trifecta. The Super Moon! Which however was called a Blue Moon because it was the second super moon this month. (the second part of our trifecta!) That doesn’t happen very often … the reason we get the phrase… “That doesn’t happen only once in a Blue Moon!”
The last of the trifecta was the Lunar Eclipse that caused the Blood Moon. The Blood Moon was definitely red. You will also see as the moon begins to eclipse back and it then sets over the mountain. Watch the slide show for the Lunar Eclipse.
Let’s not forget that the sun was coming up behind us when ALL this was going on!

Oh my! Impressive images!! Well done, Nancy!
Thanks Indah! We had so much fun!!
How wonderful Nancy. We got rained out here and I missed it.
Darn! Well I am so glad you got to come with us so we could view it together!
Thanx for the gorgeous photos Nancy
You are very welcome my Australian friend!!
I’m so glad we got to see it. I was a bit worried last night, as we had partly cloudy skies.
Yes… this morning when I saw the whispy clouds I got a bit worried!
When the moon started to set it got quite hazy. But we hung in there. It was a fabulous experience!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I truly appreciate it! Have a wonderful rest of the day to you!
Great shots and so jealous… a great view and warmth!
Thanks so much!
We have had a warm winter but need rain! I know it’s a desert but deserts need rain too.
Hugs to you!
And there’s a song to go with that but I digress 😉 Ingrid told me there’s not going to be much flowering going on because of lack of rain.
It definitely will not be the Spring we had last year! We do need rain!
I have seen some early blossoms on the trees due to our warm winter. My lavender is blooming much earlier then usual. Hopefully the cacti may still show off their blooms when spring comes.
One day warm and blooms will return to this land too 😉
That is so right! I have a fabulous perennial garden at the Lake house!!

Oh you got some fabulous photos! This moon has been quite the seducer this month hasn’t it. I got one decent photo of the eclipse, but since it was just the one, it just didn’t dazzle. But you, Girlfriend…you really captured it all so well and really got the dazzle of it. An excellent post. Thank you.
How kind of you! Your words really made me smile.
We had a lot of fun viewing it! Even though getting out of a warm bed was very hard!
Thank you ALWAYS for your kind words! I love hearing from you!
Pleasure all mine, Nancy.
Thank you so much!
What amazing pictures you were able to capture!!! You got incredible shots of every phase!! So thrilling and rewarding after getting up so early!!! And to be able to see the sun come up too in such spectacular fashion!!!! Wow!! It was cloudy here so we did not get to see it, glad to see it through your eyes!!!
Oh I am so glad you got to see this! What an experience!
