Blood Red Moon

This photograph was taken by my birding friend Danny and this is what he says about it.  I call it "the Sunset of the Earth". For those of you interested this is the ultimate sunset- a total lunar eclipse. Sunlight is refracted by the earth's atmosphere and the blue component is scattered away by the air molecules and small dust particles more than the orange and red light. The result - during totality we get the "Blood Red Moon" - a truly amazing sight...

The same effect causes the red sky at night or morning.


Thank you Danny for sharing this super photo with us.

GOOD FENCES

I was helping my son in law with his work and he decided to take me out to lunch and we found this Daddy Reindeer outside looking for his 5 youngsters. When we entered the pub we could see that they were there and 2 of them we thought had had too much to drink by the look of things!!!
