Blood moon and Mars encounter brings in a new dawn.

“Each time dawn appears, the mystery is there in its entirety.”  Rene Daumal

On the morning of 28 July 2018, myself, and lucky observers around the globe, witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime meeting in the sky: the longest “blood moon” eclipse of the 21st century, flanked by a big, brilliant Mars as it heads toward its closest approach to Earth since 2003.

I especially enjoyed watching the lunar eclipse, as the atmosphere was really ‘still’ and quiet. This silence pervaded all, as the eclipse slowly unfolded within the night.

As the moon turned blood red and was in darkness, a kookaburra broke the silence and announced a new dawn, as the moon slowly began to brighten again, and a new day dawned.
