Sunday 9-27 = Blood Moon

I am excited enough about this to report it on my blog, even though it has nothing to do with pet care. Maybe, due to the space race and TV, you’ve become jaded about sky-watching events. But Sunday evening will be worth looking at — it’s not just a total eclipse of the moon, it will also be a super moon and a blood moon  combined – the first in more than three decades. There is an excellent article at: Super Blood Moon on Sunday!

For me, the timetable for this amazing event will be:

               Moon's
                                                Azimuth   Altitude

    1. You’re welcome! I know my blog usually is about pets, their care or the funny things they do, but as a sci-fantasy writer, I keep up on what is going on in the science area and I am very excited about this upcoming event.
