"Another" Blood Moon

I was disappointed that we here in the U.S. were not able to see the amazing Blood Moon lunar eclipse two days ago.  I had to be satisfied with the amazing pictures taken elsewhere all over the globe...such as this:
So, imagine my surprise when I woke very early this morning and saw, what I choose to believe, is another version of the Blood Moon.  It was our same old moon ... still full but with a pinky-red aura surrounding it. Not easy to show in a photo (although it would have been a snap for AC or Marie) but here is what I got:  
HMMMMMMM … a message from the Big Guy?  We were the only part of the globe not privy to this amazing phenomenon.  Going it alone has many drawbacks ...

Oh I missed it all together also. Thank goodness for other who got out and took pictures. I like your version.

I was disappointed too. I always feel cheated when we don't get to observe eclipses, etc.

Moons can be tough to begin with, and then there's the problem of them looking so small in the photo.

I loved looking at the photographs of the moon we did not see here. I've loved the moon since I was a child. My dear father told me he could make the moon follow us when we drove in the car at night. And indeed he did. Such magic for his little daughter.
