The moon turns a deep red during a lunar eclipse and passes near the California Tower in Balboa Park.
It's quite a sight to see a dark blood red moon in the sky. Although my left brain knows why the moon is red (due to the eclipse and the earth's atmosphere filtering out blue light), my right brain is telling me that this a momentous occasion signaling a change to come.
This photo was from the early morning hours of Jan 31, 2018. Technically it was a super, blood, blue moon. Super means that moon appears larger than normal because it's orbit takes it closer to the earth, blood due to the red color from the eclipse, and blue because it was the second full moon during the month.
