Red Moon Rising by SomaKun Red Moon Rising by SomaKun
August 28, 2007 between the times of 1:30am - 3am in California, I sat looking up and watched as the moon disappeared and was reborn blood red for a little while before its transformation back into a silver moon. It was my first time watching a lunar eclipse. It was as eerie as it was beautiful.

I just love to see the moon when it's red, I've been told that it's the time that the demons come out :la:

You weren't in Europe and thus you wouldn't have been able to see it anyway.

I wrote a poem in public school titled red moon rising... i got an A+ on it, the only part i remember from it is;
"I open my eyes up, and what do I see?
Red moon rising, so I go back to sleep."

hang on... did you turn the photos around or something? because on all your moons, the shadow is on the same side... it should travel across the moon as the moon comes out of the shadow again.

Not really, I only showed the transformation from the white moon to the red moon.

Yah we saw it too, but at like 7-8pm. My sister ~Mickey-Mouse has a pic too, but not as nice as this :)

Plus for us (down in the southern hemisphere), the shadow came from the bottom left side :aww:

I like the way you set up all the different phases of the eclipse. Looks really neat that way. :)

I knew someone on dA would capture this! :)
My dad so wanted to see it, but could not.
So..I have put your piece on his desktop for
him to see when he signs on later today.
( The newspapers did not do it justice )

Nicely done..
BTW, I did see it live...at the beginning...in
the middle..and at its end.
