January goes out on a Super Blue Blood Snow Moon

It was a bit hazy here.

Admittedly, I tinted my photo a little, so I'd be able to 
distinguish this photo from other moon photos I have, 
as being related to the 2018 Super Blue Blood Moon.

The reddish tone will come from the shadow 
of the Earth on the moon, during the lunar eclipse.

From NPR:
"Everyone in the U.S. will be able to see at least some portion of the eclipse, with the best views in Western states.

"On the East Coast, the eclipse will begin at 5:51 a.m. local time, but the moon will set before the end of the eclipse's totality. "The darker part of Earth's shadow will begin to blanket part of the Moon with a reddish tint at 6:48 a.m. EST, but the Moon will set less than a half-hour later," NASA says. For East Coasters, the best bet for good viewing will be at about 6:45 a.m. ET.

"It'll be easier to see in the Central time zone because the moon will be higher in the sky when the eclipse begins. The red shadow will be observable by 6:15 a.m. ET. In Mountain time, the peak will be at around 6:30."
