I hope those of you based in the right places enjoyed the red moon last night. The day before yesterday, we enjoyed a fabulous bright and almost full moon, while sipping some French wine on top of a hill in the Midi-Pyrénées. But alas, yesterday we had only clouds around the time we had hoped to enjoy the red moon. Still, they were pretty spectacular too – at least, a bit earlier in the evening.

Wrong side of the planet for me. But beautiful coloring and lighting of the clouds. Thank you.

Here in the Bay area, we didn’t need an eclipse, we had a blood moon all night long, curtesy of a thick layer of smoke.

I like that light, Ingrid.

Very nice.

Here in Brisbane, we had a really clear view of the eclipse , although the moon set shortly after totality began. With Mars as well, it was really something.

Couldn’t see a damn thing.

They are gorgeous, but they might not be all they seem to be. According to one of our greatest poets:

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Thanks Ingrid! (I’m going to let this be the photoblogging picture for the week).
