OMG the moon is red tonight!!!

Look out your window now!!! THE MOON IS RED IN COLOUR!!!

Okay, I know this probably isn’t the first time, but I’ve never seen the moon any colour other than what it’s supposed to be, so it is pretty damn amazing to me!!

[OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG RED MOOOOOON~~]

I swear this isn’t photoshopped. I didn’t even adjust the brightness and contrast. This is totally wholesale from my camera (after cropping off the edges).

This is the uncropped and size-reduced version to fit into my blog:

The lights below the moon are lights from ships.

When we first discovered it, it was kind of hiding behind some clouds and it looked somewhat smaller, but no less amazing.

[OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG RED MOOOOOON~~]

It slowly moved out of the clouds.

[OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG RED MOOOOOON~~]

And then there it stood in full red glory!

Hmm… it’s starting to get more and more orange, heading towards yellow as I’m typing this.

Hurry catch it before it’s gone!

UPDATE — ONE HOUR AFTER DISCOVERY OF RED MOON:

It’s not red anymore. I think the moon was red for only about half an hour or so?

You can see how high it’s gone now. And the colour has reverted to normal.

Oh, well. No armageddon.
