I was excited. The moon was full. There was an eclipse coming. The moon was supposed to turn the color of blood. And somehow wolves were involved because it was happening in the month of January. I was howling with excitement as I prepared to capture memories of the event with my camera. Like this pic …
After seeing that, I was disappointed that I stayed up past 10:30 PM. What was I expecting? This?
I know our ancestors were terrified when celestial events like this occurred. I’m torn. I’m not sure if our ancestors were even stupider than we realize or bigger babies. I’m as ashamed to have them as my ancestors as you are to be reading this blog.
I hear the next lunar eclipse for us North Americans will be in 2022, although I could travel elsewhere in the world to see one before then. I can wait.
