A Trifecta!

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 Super Moon or January 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.

What an amazing experience! All photos were taken on my Lumix FZ 200.

Let’s not forget that the sun was coming up behind us when ALL this was going on!

Morning glow begins…


Time to go home and have more coffee! Thanks so much for stopping by!
