Super Blue Blood-Red Moon

The January Blue Moon is a Super Moon as the moon is at perigee, its orbit remains close to the earth.  If I don’t get to see this, the next Super Blue Blood Moon I can see from home will be in 177 years!  Now that’s something to live for!

The night started out with some pretty thick cloud cover, did clear in time for the big event.  The bright lights to the left in the second photo are that of a slow moving dredge working its way through Mission Bay.

The picture on the right was taken with my Panasonic, all my other pictures are taken with an old Canon G5.

Some friends will be meeting at Torrey Pines State Beach to view the event.  I did think about driving up to the Sunset Seat above the beach and join them.  This has to be one of the most unique views of the ocean.   The seat is carved from a Torrey Pine that succumbed to the engraver beetle.

Here are some pictures I have of Sunset Seat in the Del Mar Preserve above the beach and the connection to the beach below.  The views are stunning.

An easy trail leads to the beach below the overpass.

Torrey Pies Beach is popular with surfers, walkers and joggers.  It connects to the Torrey Pines State Preserve or Blacks Beach to the south.
