Quick! Get a bandage! The moon is bleeding!...oh...wait...never mind. A blood moon eclipse occurred on September 27, 2015. The whole world was supposed to explode into a kazillion pieces and brimstone fireworks was supposed to sear the skies. That never happened. I'm very disappointed.
However, I did manage to observe the entire blood moon eclipse, and then stitched together a short time-lapse movie nearly a year later. Better late than never, right?
Have you ever seen a total lunar eclipse? I’m not talkin’ about goin’ outside and takin’ a quick peek at totality. No, no, no—I’m specifically referring to sitting through the entire lunar marathon—all 4 and a half hours. All of the penumbra. All of the umbra. All of totality. You get the idea.
No? You never saw a total lunar eclipse? Perhaps the clouds ruined your view, or perhaps you were too busy watching True Blood. Come on! Don’t lie.
Luck for you, I condensed the length of the entire blood moon eclipse into mere seconds! Yeah! You don’t have to worry about sitting in the cold, or mosquitoes nipping at your ass. You can watch the entire lunar eclipse in a blink of an eye and won’t even have time to yawn.
