This is not the 'Blood Moon'
May 15, 2022 5:27am CST
That will occur during the lunar eclipse tonight (Sunday May 15). Instead, this is from dust and/or pollutants in the atmosphere which 'bend' the light and block certain hues. This is just a bloody regular ol' moon. Had to hop in the truck and drive a bit south of town to get a good shot since it was low on the western horizon.

@PhredWreck And you have taken various other photos of the blood moon, each spring! You have good equipment, thus you've learned to take professional pictures. Those idjits should do a Linda Blair impersonation, spin their head around 3-4 times!

There's an eclipse tonight? That must be why the radio guy "couldn't resist" playing Total Eclipse of the Heart when I put on CBC to hear the local news (I do occassionally want to hear it) only to learn that some nutso went on a shooting spree in Buffalo.
