So ... there I was at 3am this morning, in my dressing gown, in the garden, looking at the moon (as you do!).
Seriously, I did manage to get up at 2.30 am this morning to see the super moon total lunar eclipse. The combination of a super moon with a total lunar eclipse has only happened 5 times since 1900, and the next one is not due until 2033.
It was quite magical, and I wanted to try and get a photo. I only have a compact digital camera, but decided to have a go. I have a tiny patio garden, so was creeping around as I didn't want to alert the neighbours in case they thought I was someone up to no good! To try and lessen camera shake I eventually went for leaning against the fence to steady myself - right under nextdoor's bedroom window! I did the wrong settings on the camera a couple of times, so the flash went off - oops!
Here are my efforts - not brilliant but -
Inspired me to write another haiku -
Earth reflected red
moon falling into soft white
