I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.

Super Wolf Blood Moon

Just like an infomercial where they say, “But wait, there’s more!”

Sunday night I was thrilled to watch the lunar eclipse from my balcony. The skies were clear and it was magical seeing it and recording it photographically.

After capturing the last pictures I posted yesterday, I went inside to warm up. Then, I went back out to see the blood moon and got these shots. Unfiltered, the moon looks more purple than red.

Lunar eclipse photos from my balcony in the Rocky Mountains. I was fortunate to have a clear evening sky.

These photos were taken approximately every 5 minutes.
