We woke up to this today!!!!!  "Yikes," said Sandy Bradley, from Florida.  
"Impressive," said Mark Conde, who's here.  He was responding to the temperature, and this:
 
 
Both "impressive!!"  Tere Christensen's response was "Ahhhh-magical!  She's in Florida too.
 
We are so fortunate to be viewing the Super Blood Wolf Moon.  This picture is looking west watching it set over the Southern Appalachians.  
 
My understanding of the title is this:  Super moon because it is in perigee, nearest to the center of the Earth right now. Blood moon because it was in eclipse last night about 10:30, (we missed that part.)  Wolf moon is the name given by Native Americans for the January full moon, when wolves climb the hills and sing together.  
 
I hope you you got to see it.  If not, you can enjoy my picture.  I went outside in 10 degrees so you could see it.
 
 
You're welcome!!!!!
