Mogollon Rim stars and sunset

We were at the rim the other day… doing some leaf peeping.  No major color changes just yet… so we’ll just have to wait, and go back.

We did see this cool little horny toad, have a nice dinner and watch the sun set and stars come out though.

Blood Moon

bloodmoon_Ss2i

A super moon only happens like once a year… when the moon is full and closest to the earth.  The next super moon is scheduled for Nov 14, 2016.

Even more rare is when a super moon is in full lunar eclipse, making it appear red in color, i.e. it’s term ‘blood moon’.  The next blood moon isn’t expected until 2033.
