Skywatch Friday: once in a blue moon........

there is a total Lunar Eclipse, and we are awake to catch it! I realise this was a widespread event and we are probably going to visit each others blogs today and say "snap" because lots of us will have seen it, but anyway, for what it is worth, here is my 2 cents worth! To be honest, I was quite disappointed with many of them, as the light got worse, the quality became grainier. but it was cool to see it, and watch it sink over the horizon.....

..... and since we were awake anyway, we decided to go for a walk, and catch the sun taking over the spotlight in the sky, so to speak!

I love those shots, especially the first one. I missed it :(... I forgot firstly, and secondly apparently there was cloud cover and you couldn't see it from here anyway.

Our local boxing hero.. Ricky Hatton always enters the Ring to the tune of 'Blue Moon' Ricky is a staunch Manchester City (BLUE)fan and Blue Moon is that teams anthem.

I missed taking the moon shot as the sky was cover in clouds so I for one am glad to see these and others today.

After 32 other comments, mine will probably get lost in the shuffle, but i have to tell you anyway - Beautiful shots of the eclipse. And the sunrise silhouette is fantastic! This is the kind of shot I would be really proud of.
