I was excited because I'd been hearing about this "Moon" for the last two weeks on my social media sites as well as on the news. So I was really looking forward to it.
My boyfriend and I witnessed the lunar eclipse happen the moon began as a white moon and slowly it began to show a shade of blue as the eclipse began to occur. It really did look blue. I was a little bummed at first because I thought the moon was supposed to turn red, blood red for that matter.
I'm an impatient person, so I kept on switching back and fourth from working on my homework assignments to gazing at the moon. I was even multi-tasking (even more) by watching the lunar eclipse live.
Eventually, the moon was darkened by the shadows of the sun and appeared red. Well, not totally red, I would say more of an orange color maybe brown dust color. But it was definitely not white and shiny anymore. I was in awe and I even caught it on tape!
I am just so grateful that I was able to witness and experience this lunar eclipse along with everyone else who stayed up to catch a glimpse of it. I felt honored that I was able to see this "Moon" with my own eyes. It's different seeing it for yourself than seeing it on screen. It's just a mind-blowing experience. It was AMAZING!! Hope you guys were able to watch it in person too.
Here is my "Blood Moon" short video clip. Hope you guys like it!
