Good Morning, Lunar Eclipse

I actually got up early for you!

And apparently it’s going to be the last lunar eclipse until 2025, and who knows what will happen between now and then, so, happy I woke up for this.

In the US, it’s election day. US citizens, please vote if you have not done so already. Thank you.

  1. Your sky seems clearer than mine in Ann Arbor.

    And all of us voted, early.

  2. I voted by mail last week, I’m always proud to. It’s was a little bittersweet though, there were 19 races but only 10 where voting mattered. Every judicial position had one candidate for all the parties. Unbelievable! Our party leaders working together in a bipartisan manner to select the best people as our judges.

    I’m told this a New York state tradition.

  3. I got up at my regular 5am and saw the transition from partial to total. Somewhat reddish moon, but nothing like as red as yours. I could not see the transition back to partial, because the moon had already dipped below the horizon. Heading your way, so to speak.

  4. One of the folks I see most workdays at the bus stop pointed it out to me; this was about 5:40-5:45 EST in Arlington (Va.).

  5. Seriously John? My first time to the blog and that’s all I get? What, you went back to bed? ( An eclipse is nice and all and the voting thing.) Guess I expected a profound pouring forth of your usual, (gleaned from the books), “stuff”, wit, wisdom, wonderful sarcasm, etc. Ah well, since I have what seems endless time, (boring, boring, boring) to endure I suppose I will be back tomorrow for a second go. Hope you caught up on the ol’ sleep.

    P.S. I need emojis in here ; )

  6. in cheerful mode, the moon seems to be saying -” welcome to the death of American democracy!”

    I voted early by mail as I live in a semi-sane state (CA). I’m apprehensive that the Christo-fascist party will take Congress. I’ve been reading an Italian history book, the parallels between the GQP and the fascists are uncanny – cultish devotion, thuggish behavior, rejection of expert knowledge, all that matters is who you know, Ugh.

  7. It was pouring down rain here — a Very Good thing, and it meant I didn’t have to stay up until 4 am. Also, I voted last week.
