Winter Solstice Total Lunar Eclipse Movie

Well I finally put together some of my images from the eclipse to make this movie. The next Total Lunar Eclipse visible from my area will be December 10 2011. I can't help but wonder what I'll be doing or where I'll be when it occurs. Things change, doors close, new ones open. I think a lot of the time we stare too long at the closed doors we don't notice the new one being open for us, do we go in look around and then back out or do we go for it, only God knows.

I took the image below December 31, the last Moon Rise of 2010. Watching an orange Crescent Moon Rise is always so surreal for me, add to it -26c and 5:30am and you get the feeling like you're the only one around probably watching the show. In the distant a couple miles there is a highway that runs in front of it, watching the tiny headlights of the cars travel in front of it, makes it even more odd, surely they see what I see, why don't they stop and take it in, well I guess they have somewhere to be. I think there is a lot of stuff going on that we don't notice, it's cool sometimes to take the time to stop what you're doing, as in my case sleeping in my cozy bed, leave it's comfort and experience something even more juicy, taking that step of faith that there is something out there worth the effort with awesome results. One last thing, got a mention as one of the top 50 blogs about space travel, which is cool...all the best in 2011.

Great post. I missed the eclipse this time.

I have never been to Canada, but my youngest daughter informs me that she my get married this year in your beautiful country. They are looking for a destination location. If they do, then I'll finally get to see the country everybody's talking about with such praise.

Happy trails

Hey Bob! :D

Happy New Year, my friend!

I see that you are back in business: you have made my day ;).

"Things change, doors close, new ones open." - isn't that true? Besides being true it is beautiful to see it happen (even if at the time we miss out on its beauty, due to the suffering *nodding*).

Gorgeous images (as always): you haven't lost the touch!

I hope 2011 brings you nothing but love and peace, Bob (I really do)!


Priyank said...

Hi Bob, nice movie, how long did you take you to put it together? Congratulations for the mention in the 50 list! Wish you a fabulous 2011 with lots of astrostuff!

Music producer. Film maker. Are there more talents to be seen from you?

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Swubird, too bad about the eclipse, it was awesome and this time around once in a lifetime thing being the Winter Solstice. It can be cold up here where I live but bar none the flatest horizons for the best Sun/Moon Sets/Rises.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Stephanie.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Max, eventually the suffering makes way for growth, the cool part. All the best in 2011 for you Max..and I really mean that as well.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Priyank, took almost a whole day, but a labor of love, so it was all good. All the best in 2011 my friend.

Bob Johnson said...

Ha FishHawk, finally applying God's gifts he has given me.

Peter said...

Hi! My apologies if I've done something wrong - I haven't seen or heard of you for so long, not since your divorce anyway - Must have been something I said or did. Yes, as our Federal Opposition leader said the other day, "Shit happens." The same saying explains a lot in the blogosphere as well. There's no need to reply if there's ill feeling remaining - I'm too long in the tooth to get upset by petty things these days, well, most of the time, that is.

Take Care,

Bob Johnson said...
