Bloody Beaver Moon / Contrails Gone Wild

Dawn anticipates the violence of the sun

Contrails mark the night sky as they are blown, and reshaped into apparitions.

The beaver moon shining bright, and full of itself, rises in anticipation of becoming a bloody beaver moon in the wee hours of the morning†.

The above photo is only representative of the blood moon that will happen almost 8 hours after this post’s posting.

†There will be a full eclipse of the moon in the wee hours of the morning on 11/8/22 that will be visible from my location starting at 1:00 am. The full eclipse will be at 3:59 am. The moon will set before the eclipse ends at 6:56, close to sunrise.

    • Sad state of atmospheric conditions hanging in the way of you having a bloody good time. Thanks, Maj & Sher.

  1. Holy molly this is so cool Tim.. Sorry the conditions aren’t cooperating with your schedule. Whatever you capture will be better than most of us could hope for! loved these!

  2. I went to try and catch the moon rising over the Sandias, and instead of turning off the stabilization on the lens, I turned the focus from auto to manual. I got real talent. At least you got some pretty shots.

  3. Amazing sky photos! We had clear skies here so I was able to see the eclipse clearly. I didn’t even have to go outside in the cold this morning.
