Lunar eclipses, blood moons, and Easter.! Oh my.!!

This Saturday’s full moon was also the third blood moon in a four-part series. Blood moons get their nickname from the orange coloring present before, during, and after a lunar eclipse. Yesterday’s lunar eclipse was also the quickest of the last two eclipses. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of the full moon in blood moon coloring. But, my friend, P., and Zenzi Beach did a great job capturing the full moon in all of her beauty 🙂

Today is Easter for most Christians around the world. Interesting tidbit about Easter is that it never falls on the same date. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after (never on) the Paschal full moon. The Paschal full moon is the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox. So this weekend had it all…a lunar eclipse, a blood moon, Easter. And Passover.!

I hope everyone got a chance to see the moon last night. She was resplendent.! She even made Lake Michigan look good as she cast her moon beams on the water.! I hope everyone is having a great day. See you for Corona soon 🙂
