|Blood Moon, 5.5 x 5.5", mixed media|
The scene was so dramatic, a sound track would have been appropriate. Do you suppose there is a sound of light waves being blocked? I was fascinated to read about the red light that makes its way around the earth light the moon. And light passing through the ozone (which absorbs the red light waves) makes a rim of turquoise around the moon when the eclipse is complete.
We were only able to see the first half of the spectacle in the eastern U.S. As dawn approached, the moon sunk low and it was a beautiful pink color, almost blending in the the dawn sky and a bit tricky to spot. I've never seen the moon quite like that before. So I made a painting of that as well.
