Not as exciting as the solar eclipse-but worthwhile to see.

I always thought the eclipse was a shitty car.

I took this shot of the setting eclipse the other day but these fat bastards kept getting in my way.

The building I work in is high enough that I just might be able to see this.

A blue moon, a super moon and a lunar eclipse will all fall on the same night at the end of January in an event that hasn’t happened in over 150 years.

These three lunar events separately are not uncommon, but it is rare for all three to occur at the same time. The last time that there was a blue moon, a super moon and a total lunar eclipse at the same time for North America was on March 31, 1866.

More recently, a blue moon, a super moon and a lunar eclipse occurred at the same time on Dec. 30, 1982, but only for the Eastern Hemisphere. Because of time zones, the full moon was not considered a blue moon for North America as the previous full moon occurred at the end of Nov. 30, not early on Dec. 1.

Looking forward to this, there is such a weird vibe in the air during rare celestial events
