Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Lunar Eclipse Tonight, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

a haiku. . .

lunar eclipse now
earth moon sun move silently
darkest shadow near

waiting. . . parsnip
music. . . You Could Be Happy, Snow Patrol


  1. Is this the one where the moon goes red? I'd love to see that.

  2. Darkest shadow near, indeed. Great photo, what's that red thing?

    Of all days for some clouds to start rolling in... it was clear till last night. There was enough mist in the air that my camera almost broke it's self trying to pick up on the moon but saw the reflective light.
    So my viewing of the moon was not as clear as it should be... but I got to see some color and it does turn red or orange.

    The red thing, was a lighted window. I was playing with settings and this is what my poor new camera was trying to figure out...

  4. Nice haiku. I tried to stay up but crashed. Did go out several times to admire the moon, it was beautiful peeking through the clouds.

  5. Parsnip, you actually got to see it! I'm envious! It was too cloudy here!

    I quit at 2:30 more clouds and I think it was over by then. I loved that even misty and cloudy I got to see some !

    I was very lucky. And I loved it !
