On September 27th 2015, we were graced by the awesome showing in the heavens. The moon was set from a four stage phenomenon that hadn't occurred since the 1980s. Even more exciting, this exact setup wouldn't show itself until 2033. At a time when my 2nd born son would be in University.
The night was beautiful, the company second to non. My babe, kids and I marched to a near by field just behind east-mint in Winnipeg. A favourite spot of mine for shots into the external world.
The stage was set with a beautiful clear sky and a bright full autumn moon.
The below shot is taken with my camcorder rolling on a digital zoom and the real moon on the background on your left. Love the duplicity of the shot.
(The near final act with a little light still sipping through. While looking at this I wondered what the taxonomy of the three structures (Sun, Moon and Earth were).
As it turns out, the Sun is largest, Earth next and Moon smallest. With such an arrangement of sizes, you would think that events like this would take place very frequently. Nope, the next time this occurs in a setup similar to this (super moon), is 18years from the year of this post.
Near full blood moon. As the blood moon procession completed, clouds came in as if to hide the weeping moon. Shortly after earth left side of the moon started eluminating, clouds cleared and we were back to a full moon with little cloud distractions.
