Postcard: The Belated Not So Bloody Blood Moon

The white blood moon in New York City

I know, I know, I missed the boat. The blood moon frenzy is over and I missed it. I got super busy and this image had been sitting in my camera since Monday night.

I took this from my apartment window in the very short period of time when the moon was visible and not obscured by the high-rises or the clouds. The next day the weather was straight out of Blade Runner. No chance of photos then.

And before you say it…. I know that the moon doesn’t look particularly bloody, but I did try…I swear.

It was 8pm and I was on the phone with a friend—discussing the blood moon as it so happens—while leaning out of my window. The blood wasn’t supposed to appear until 3am eastern and we were wondering whether either of us were going to see it.

I set my alarm thinking I would be a do my best photojournalist impression but the second I heard my iPhone ring I turned it off and went back to sleep.

No Pulitzers in my future…
