    Super Blue Blood Moon

    This morning, January 31, 2018, from 5:51am until 7:04am, here in South Florida, we can see the rare event of the Super Blue Blood Moon.


    The last time this happened was 150 years ago.


    I couldn’t pass up the chance to capture this amazing event. I woke up early to head to my spot to take photos throughout the hour it was happening.

    Laptop Bag

    Here is a recommended bag that I have used.

    Last year I was on a search for a laptop bag. It needed to fit a 13.5″ computer along with it’s charging cable, pen and mouse.

    I looked at all kinds of brands until I found Think Tank. They had (and still currently have) various colors and sizes.

    After looking back and forth between them, I finally chose the Think Tank Retrospective Laptop Case 13L. The Think Tank Retrospective 30 was runner-up as it could carry a camera with a tablet.

    The laptop case fits the computer perfectly with all the accessories. The material is treated to be weather-resistant and it includes a rain cover.

    If you have any questions regarding the bag, feel free to email me and I’d be happy to answer any questions.

    Think Tank has great customer service and can answer your questions about their products too.

    The moon is quite a spectacular astronomical body that orbits the Earth. It is amazing how it has many phases and have special events for us to see. When I say special events, I mean those nights that we see it pass behind the Earth into its shadow (lunar eclipse), or when it gets closer to the Earth that it looks larger in size (supermoon).


    On August 20, 2013, there was a third full moon in a four full moon season so that moon is called a Blue Moon. As soon as I heard there was a rare event happening in the night sky, I make sure to get my camera, telephoto zoom lens and tripod ready for action.


    On September 8, 2014, there was a supermoon that was also called a harvest moon. A harvest moon is a full moon that happens closest to autumnal equinox.


    Another rare event was the Supermoon of 2015. It was not only a supermoon but it was a total lunar eclipse as well. A total lunar eclipse is also called a blood moon as it has a reddish tint. This Supermoon Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse happened on September 27, 2015.

    The supermoon that I captured in 2016 was on November 13, 2016.


    There was only one appearance of a supermoon in 2017. It was just this past weekend on the night of December 3rd, early December 4th.
