Super Blue Blood Moon 2018

For The Super Blue Blood Moon 2018 – Merge From Right

Honestly, I really hadn’t even decided to roll out this morning to even attempt to get a shot of the Super Blue Blood Moon because I knew it would be low on the horizon, and I frankly don’t like getting up before daylight, much less in the freezing cold without so much as a cup of coffee. Not that I don’t have coffee. But having coffee before going outside would mean getting up that much earlier.

But of course, I had to roll over and do it anyway. Once I got outside, I wasn’t as disappointed in the position of the moon as I thought I might be. It was still relatively high up in the air as the eclipse began. At first I attempted to get a shot through some tree limbs, and one or two of those is ok, but not with much of the “blood moon” effect. It was still too early. As the moon continued to sink down onto the horizon, I moved to a different vantage, and about half-way into the eclipse found the angle above for a nicely whimsical shot. I wasn’t able to get any full eclipse shots because the moon was just too far down into the horizon. Daylight was coming up pretty quickly by then, and I wonder if any folks around here, with a better posture, were able to get a good shot before the sunlight washed it out completely.

The shot here is remarkably unedited. As such things go, most more typical shots actually get more adjustments in the photo-shop than this one has. Which is too say, that while the street sign almost appears to be superimposed in some way, it is not. Obviously, I brilliantly determined to use a flash, and due to their reflectivity, street signs have a way of popping out like that. If I offer myself some constructive critism, it is that the sign does tend to upstage the moon just a bit. Still, it’s kind of a fun shot of such a rare event.

Solar Eclipse 2017

The historic event is over and now we find ourselves on the far side of the moon. In Huntsville “totality” only reached 97% but I got a pretty good shot.

Will The Dark Side Of The Moon Be Apocalypse Now?!

Forgive me for waxing poetic… well maybe this wrap-up should just be called “waxy.” … In short, these stories about eugenics, censorship, invasion of privacy and the impending North Korean apocalypse deserve much more attention, but the world moves on, and these stories will reappear, probably over and again. Never-the-less, I take note for the sake of doing so.

Super Moon 2016

The absolute optimum is actually early tomorrow morning, but hay, I’m done for the evening. You can still get out there and view this once in a lifetime event.

The Venus Transit

I just finished my photography session of the Venus Transit. Not having the best equipment for solar photography, I set up a reflective system using binoculars onto a white piece of cardboard…

  • Let The Dead Bury Their Own Dead

    Whether Ray Brent Marsh was curbing costs, took the Biblical admonition a bit literally, or simply had a wedding to attend seems a little unclear. The situation certainly caused some grief and bears a second look.

  • Rock Church Blab And Grab Boondoggle

    To suggest that the Rock Church Blab And Grab Boondoggle and the attendant combination of Church, municipal, state, and business associations makes up a conspiracy of corruption, ethical conflicts, legal conflicts, violations of church and state separation, human trafficking, murder, and other unconstitutional civil rights violations – would be putting it nicely.

  • Art Stogner, Jason Moore, And Child Molestation In Huntsville City Schools

    The offense was strictly taboo, and as class president I immediately considered it my responsibility to correct the problem. I turned around and headed up three or four flights of bleachers and down the row, grabbing the flag pole and demanding that it be relinquished into my custody.

  • A Very Bad Cop

    There is mounting evidence in Huntsville of a deliberate system of extermination whereby a number of “at risk” individuals have met with inextricable and untimely deaths in recent years, as well as a long emerging pattern of “assisted suicide” by police that effectively results in the extermination of the so-called “undesirable” individual – usually branded as mentally ill. While it appears these murders by police are incidental, they are more likely achieved by the same system of domestic terrorism that ultimately staged the death of Eric Freeman. The whereabouts of Glenn Watson is unknown at this time, however, he may have fled to Phucket, Thailand where it is believed he is invested in real-estate holdings.

  • Tommy Brown: Child Molestation, Human Trafficking Lynchpin

    This could be the most dangerous man in Huntsville. I’ve known Tommy Brown casually for many years, but only became overtly suspicious of his underworld dealings after Police Officer Ricky McCarver got into an altercation with John Lee Bullard at the Hsv Transportation Bus Station.

  • Another Loudmouth Sheriff Thinks He’s A Clever Smartass

    Not unlike smart-ass Harris County Texas Sheriff Ron Hickman who convicted the suspect before he was even apprehended ( see the article below “Darren Goforth dTIRRd By Miles & Miles & Miles | Pigs Don’t Learn” ), Sheriff Hanlin has already got it all figured out. Within two days of what was indeed a horrific massacre in Umpqua Oregon, without being able to talk to Chris Harper Mercer – because he is dead – while his family, all the students, and all he community is still in shock – this smart ass sheriff KNOWS everything there is to know, has convicted Harper of mental illness, and declared him to be “unrecognizable.”

  • Danielle Fontenot: Jeff Sessions, This Blood’s For You

    Danielle Fontenot is, unfortunately, the perfect example of organized crime and human trafficking out of control. And, why Jeff Sessions and his aristocratic plantation system protected by mollycoddled police is not just insolent, but a threat to the survival of the United States and constitutional democracy as we know it.

    Cyclops graffitti rules at the Lydia Gold skate park in downtown Huntsville. I took this photo in 2014. Although graffiti is often remarkable, it is also illegal, and this artwork along with much more has long been cleared away.
