Friday night when I left my studio, the moon was rising over the barn. And around it was a rainbow.
My photo, which looks more like a painting, doesn’t capture exactly what I saw. The colors were more intense, less diffused, hugging the moon. But I think my photo captures the wonder I felt when I saw the moon and her rainbow.
When I came out of the house a few minutes later, the sky was cloudless and the rainbow gone. The full moon drowned out the light of the stars around her and appeared alone in the black sky.

So, taken after the early Friday morning event, which was the longest partial lunar eclipse of the Blood moon in a very long time.
Incase you missed it check out:
Yes, Jean, it was after the eclipse. Thanks for the article.
My mom and grandmother had an old Ukrainian saying that a ring around the moon meant a change in the weather.
We had that moon too!
I’d never heard that before Nancy, Thanks, I’ll think it the next time I see a ring around the moon.
