Last week. Another lunar eclipse. Another full moon. Rising near sunset and moving across the night sky. Then, near dawn, a shadow passed across the brightness. The white light faded on red stone cliffs. Until the moon darkened into a red orb. Lit only by sun-fringed earthlight. This time, unlike last time, the moon was near the horizon as dawn approached. And a tricky trail provided a chance to join the blood moon against the brightening sky.
