Lunar Eclipse

The alarm goes off at 4am.

No sane person gets up this early. Unless you work the shift. The moon is full and bright, it’s a lunar eclipse this morning, tonight.

Keith Christie, Alex Frings and Jonatan Lundmark had the same alarm. The lure of took us out of our cosy dens and into the chill of the morning. Keith was sharing the moon in Brunswick Heads, while we all chose Wategos and the Lighthouse to look on in awe at the white night that turned red.

A lunar eclipse only happens when the earth is in between the sun and the moon, casting a gradual shadow which started at 4:30am and finished around 6am. A special encounter for all, and it was not the end of the world, rather a celebration of nature.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the pics!
