Throwback Thursday: Blood-moon

Last Friday there was another opportunity to see a moon eclipse. Unfortunately, western Germany wasn’t in an optimal place for seeing the whole process.

  • Moon rise at 21:23
  • Sunset at 21:26
  • start of the lunar eclipse 21:30
  • maximum at 22:21

Many people were out for watching the event, but not all of them were lucky to see something. I wasn’t able to see a thing, too. I was faced with a moon-rise behind a dense layer of clouds, despite the stars standing higher above the horizon were visible. So, in my location the start of the process wasn’t visible because we’re too far west. Sunset was too late and a layer of clouds didn’t allow a view on the moon during the central part of the process. So, I went back home. At about 23:00 I was able to see the red moon when the moon already rose high enough to be above the cloud layer. But, at this time the reddish color already started to vanish. Bad luck.

Hoping for next time. On January 21st the times are better for us. But, probably the weather will be against us again.

till that, I still have the images from September 2015.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: blood moon


Nowadays, everything changes quickly. The whole world is on constantly change and the changing rate increasing steadily.

Most people nowadays have a mobile or a cell phone. An enormous percentage of these people us a smartphone. While some people are happy with the default wallpaper images, there are lots of people changing them either by an image downloaded from an only wallpaper service or by an image taken by their own. Me, too! And, as a photographer, I certainly use one of my own images. But, I don’t change that image often. A few weeks ago I made the first change since I got my first smartphone in 2009! That background image moved with me from smartphone to smartphone until now.

Do you use the default image, one of the spare images of your smartphone manufacturer, an image taken from an online wallpaper service or one of your own images? Would you show it to the public? Mine is here 🙂

Take care!
