Backyard Winter Night Sky in New Jersey: Lunar Eclipse.
The moon does turn red during a lunar eclipse, even if it is only a partial eclipse.

Gone to See America. December 2007 Florida Road Trip. Day 6: Birds at Fort De Soto Park.
It is always fun going to Fort De Soto Park. It is located on the southern end of Pinellas county separating Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The park is known for its beaches and is a great location to take bird pictures. The three images for this day include a Great Blue Heron, a White Egret having a cricket for breakfast, and an Osprey building a nest under a full moon.
