Entre los fenómenos naturales más comentados de este año tenemos la Luna de Sangre. No, no nos referimos a Crepúsculo, ni a ningún tipo de vampiro o fin del mundo apocalíptico, nos referimos al fenómeno de la luna, que en México se pudo apreciar 3 veces en este años y se espera una más para principios del 2015.
Este fenómeno ocurre cuando la tierra se interpone entre la luna y el sol pero en lugar de ocultarse adquiere tonos rojos, por lo que coloquialmente la llaman luna de sangre y en la antigüedad era asociada a eventos apocalípticos o religiosos.
Sí este año te las perdiste todas, en el 2015 podrás verlas el 4 de Abril y 28 de Septiembre.
Ojalá el próximo año no las dejes pasar sin antes ver el maravilloso espectáculo que brindan, desde hoy guarda las fechas en tu agenda, para que te recuerden el día indicado en el que deberás desvelarte un ratito y observar la luna roja. Si quieren saber más información, en la parte de abajo les anexamos el link. Recuerda darle like a la nota y compartirla con tus amigos, para que ellos tampoco olviden ver estas lunas del 2015.

Blood Moon over Kauffman Center
The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is a performing arts center in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, USA, at 16th and Broadway, near the Power & Light District, the Sprint Center and the Crossroads Arts District. Its construction was a major part of the ongoing redevelopment of downtown Kansas City.
The Center was created as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Unlike some other major civic construction projects, no taxpayer funds went into its construction. The City of Kansas City contributed to and operates a parking garage adjacent to the Kauffman Center.
It is the performance home to the Kansas City Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, and the Kansas City Ballet which in the past performed at the Lyric Theatre, eight blocks north of the center. The Kauffman Center houses two unique performance venues: Muriel Kauffman Theatre and Helzberg Hall.
According to its website, the Kauffman Center’s mission is “to enrich the lives of communities throughout the region, country and world by offering extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences”. The Kauffman Center seeks to fulfill this mission by offering a wide selection of performances, and also by offering specific programs to connect with the youth in the Kansas City area.

Blood Moon Over San Diego
This past week a large portion of the world got to share in an experience of witnessing a lunar eclipse. It seemed like this time around that everyone was excited to see it. In comparasion to previous year such events where only limited to a few “hardcore” people that would stay up and trek out to photograph it. It was a rare thing. But for this one, everyone it seemed stayed up past their normal bedtime. My social media feeds was buzzing with updates and photos. Oh the photos! There were countless photos coming in every minute. It was fun to watch.
The other thing about this event is that it was awesome to participate in a shared experience. Rarely in landscape photography do we get to experience a large amount of people to experience the same event together. Usually there is only a handful of people around. With so many people taking part in staying up until midnight and photographing it only made the event more exciting.
Another thing that made this particular eclispe was that this is one of the first times that the San Diego weather cooperated for us to see it. With the exception of a few clouds, we were able to see the event in its entirely without much distraction. So that brought in a nice change.
The big thing that I took away from this experience is that such things are best done with family and friends. Such events in my opinion bring people a lot more closely. It is like going camping, where as you sit around a campfire you talk and share stories. Photographing this event with my friends Garrett and Justin, it was good time exchanging stories and sharing post via our smart phones. What all this equates to is this; when an adventure present itself, call up some hardcore friends, and go do it. Nothing more to it. Half of the adventure is just hanging out and talking. So get out there explore, and share with other the adventure.
The photo that I present here is what I would have like to see. One reason that I didn’t get this view in real life was because this event happen during a week day which meant that I had work in the morning so driving far was out of the question for me. But having the idea of where I would like to see it and using some of my photography skill sets allowed me to share my interoperation of the event. And the result is what you see. the lunar eclipse over my home city of San Diego.
I took the original moon photos in a park near my home. Which is about 20 miles north of downtown San Diego.
Brilliant Hues of a Blood Moon
The brilliant hues of a blood moon come from the edges of the sun peeking around the periphery of the Earth, catching the atmosphere. It's essentially a global sunset shining on the moon, which has to be in just the right position to catch those rays.
The Blood Moon was visible on all or parts of the U.S.A.
The people of Europe, Africa and the Middle East were not able to see it.
This morning I got up very early to take some shots of the Moon, but the sky was somewhat cloudy and it was raining.
I went back to bed thinking that I was going to miss this event.
At around 6:00am my husband woke me up to tell me that the moon eclipse was very visible.
I quickly picked up my gear, went outdoors and starting to take several shots.
Here is a compilation of some of the shots that I have taken. The last to the right is the actual picture of the moon with the Valley in the foreground and it was taken at 6:28am at the end of the shooting.
Thank you for your comments.
