|Looking at the moon and Mars from my front door July 28th, 2018|
424 as longtime readers of this blog would be sick of reading was my father's old taxi cab number, so it was kind of eerie for me seeing all over the local news that 4:24 am was the time the partial eclipse would start.
Taking pictures on my cell phone never seems to do the scene justice and the first picture I took I forgot to turn the flash off, but at least it gives an idea of just where I was standing and the roof that I was standing under.
I could never get any real decent shots of the moon, as I kept getting orbs where there was really nothing to see with the naked eye.
That orb at the top of the moon shouldn't be there in real life and neither should the one a fair way under the moon.
|The dot to the left of the moon is Mars, the dot to the right ain't there in reality|
|Now the orb appears to be floating under my roof guttering|
But nevertheless it was a meaningful fault of the lens if this were the case for me.
No different than say a scarab beetle landing on a window while telling Mr. Jung about a beetle dream you had, I think.
At 5:30 am just before the moon set below the treeline the moon looked more orange than bloody and it was too dark the show up in a descent photo from my cell phone camera, but I found the orange moon to be personally ironic to me, as my father's old "yellow cab" always looked more orange than yellow to me:-)
