Lunar Eclipse (AKA Blood Moon)


Last night I stayed up late to witness the total lunar eclipse, which happens when the moon becomes covered by the Earth's shadow.  The moon doesn't go completely dark, but instead takes on a reddish glow, causing some people to call it a "Blood Moon".  There will be four consecutive total lunar eclipses happening through September 2015, which scientists call a tetrad.  Apparently tetrads are pretty rare occurrences and the next set won't happen until 2032.

I was so glad we had a clear sky to see the eclipse take place.  It was fun to bring out my tripod and try to get some shots with my telephoto lens.  I'll admit that I had no idea what I was doing, but after experimenting a bit I was able to get a few good shots.  Unfortunately, my camera battery died right before the moon was totally covered (just my luck), but that gives me more incentive to stay up late for the next one in October!


Did any of you stay up late to check out the Blood Moon?

Sunday Style: Black and White


I don't know if anyone else noticed, but last week there were quite a few black and white outfits.  This is obviously a very classic combination, but what I love is the way these ladies mixed different prints and textures to spice things up a bit!




I'm not even sure which of these looks I like the best...they are each so unique and fun!  But now it's time for another week of Sunday Style and I'm excited to see what you all have to share. As always, here are the rules:

1. Add the link to your specific outfit post, not your main blog page.
2. Grab a button and add it to your post (a text link is also fine).
3. Comment on this post and someone else's post...the whole point is to visit each other.
4. Follow my blog, so you can be reminded to link up next time!

PLANE PRETTY

Don't have a blog?  You can still share what you are wearing on Instagram or Twitter...just use the hashtag #sundaystyle, so everyone can find your cute outfits! I'd love for you to tag me (@jennywinward)...that will ensure that I don't miss your photo and I'll be sure to leave a comment!
