Super Blood Wolf Moon

The Moon will turn red in the early hours of Monday morning as Britain experiences its last total lunar eclipse for 10 years. The Moon will start to darken at 2.35am with full eclipse beginning at 4.40am. It will be free of the Earth’s shadow by 7.49am.

It  is the last chance for to see a total lunar eclipe in its entirety until 2029.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes exactly between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow which stops solar rays reaching the lunar surface.

I’m hoping to get up at 4:40 and see if I can capture a piture of the super blood wolf moon.

Here is a before picture.

I have just finished reading a historical book about the early days of the SAS. My new book has been recommended by my friend Graham.  The book is “The Railway Man” by Eric Lomax. I have resisted watching the DVD, because he said to read the book first and then watch the DVD. It will be interesting to see how the film differs from the book.

Picture No 136

Tonight, I was looking for something in the garage and by accident I found my old .177” “Gat gun”. The pistol is so cheaply made and hopelessly inaccurate, it is really a joke. I have kept it for sentimental value. Later on in the year, I will take some more photographs and write up on how the pistol works.

How many people remember or even owned a  “The Gat” ?.
