Moons, Blood and Otherwise

You know what doesn’t take particularly good photos of a selenelion?

An iPhone 5. (Actually, this photo was taken just before sunrise, so it just counts as the lunar eclipse. Selenelion means that both the sun and the eclipsed moon are visible.)

I’m sure there are lots of photography apps that could have helped me with this, but there are plenty of photos on the web showing just how lovely it was. (And it really was beautiful.) This moon was the second in a lunar tetrad, four eclipses in a two year period. The next on will be on April 4, 2015.

But even a regular full moon has some morning glory sometimes:
