no blood moon for us

Last night there was an extremely close "blood moon" event and the best viewing in our area was to coincide with our leaving snacks & movie night at our church. Unfortunately, clouds hid all but the faintest moonlight during the actual eclipse. I painted a facsimile of the moon early this morning since I didn't see the real thing.

Sometimes I don't draw anything at all as I listen in at church, but yesterday I found myself sketching during both Sunday school's discussion about blood moons in prophecy and during the later church service.


  1. You have captured the Moon beautifully! I have seen it this morning, it was really amazing!

  2. For not seeing it, you sure recreated it very well! That's the glow it had.

  3. I found a photo online to know what it was supposed to look like. Disappointed that I missed the real thing. A friend from church lives about 30 miles north of us --- she showed me pictures of what they could see and it looked just like this, only much smaller than expected.

  4. I saw the Moon early morning when I went to the store. It was near the horizon and it was larger than I expected! Your painting is very similar to it! Just there was a shade in a corner.
