On a hunch, photographer Laurene Morton drove to Dinosaur Hill Park in Pleasant Hill, California Sunday evening.
Sure enough, “a huge crowd was waiting” for the clouds to clear and the total eclipse, on the moon’s closest pass to the Earth. “Everyone’s been talking about” the “Super Blood Moon,” all day, she said, but no one really knew when it was going to happen.
In the background is Mt. Diablo and the temperature as always in Contra Costa County near the City by the bay was pleasant at 70 degrees F.
If you missed this Super Blood Moon, no worries. The next one is in 2033.
