Total Eclipse of the Supermoon

W 105°06.90’
Elevation: 8091 feet

We were fortunate to be able to view the lunar eclipse during our time at Valle Vidal, The Valley of Life, in Northern New Mexico.  This was not just any moon eclipse- it was a supermoon. Super because the Moon was at its closest point near the Earth.  The eclipse of the supermoon is rather rare - the next one will not occur until 2033.  I hope we were not the only ones sprawled out in a meadow, watching the bright moon disappear, bit by bit, as it transformed into a suspended red glow.
