It seems red has been the color of the week.
If you happened to be up at 3 this morning, you may have seen the blood moon. It is more likely you only witnessed a series of lovely crimson sunrises the past two days.
The view on my drive into town this week was simply been divine.
The view of Drayton’s Passage from our bank spectacular — the sun, the moon, and, speaking of color, the rainbows.
So, why a red moon?
Because the moon is simply skimming the outskirts of the Earth’s shadow, the moon is painted red by the bright glow of every sunrise and every sunset on Earth.
“This incredible light beams into the heart of Earth’s shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the Moon into a great red orb when viewed from Earth,” according to nasa.gov.
You know what else is red in our neck of the woods?
Blooms of the castilleja, commonly know as the Indian paintbrush or prairie-fire.
Good morning Longbranch.
