after the lunar eclipse of the 8th, the moon was bright and clear on this October morning as I walked back home. Somewhat lopsided and distorted in shape like it got a bit squished and banged around…..

Was a Lunar Eclipse on 8th October 2014, though the eclipse was not visible because the phenomenon took place before Moon-rise in this part of Earth. However, due to the Moon still being in the “shadow” of the Earth’s penumbra, it showed red-orange and a bit bulkier than a normal full-moon. Quite beautiful actually.
