A Super Blue Blood Moon (and gorgeous coastline)

Instead of listening to the State of the Union, I went down to the sea to check out the state of the world.

I left my home – about 3000 ft/914 m elevation – and drove up to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park entrance – at about 4000 ft/1219 m elevation, then headed all the way down the Chain of Craters Road to the ocean.  The sun set in the west, the moon rose in the east, and I had a perfect view of both.  Lovely.  Where I was, no lava was entering the ocean, but as night came on, I did see a small red glow up slope.

(The little black shapes are terns skimming the water, possibly after the flying fish I saw.)

Live all you can.  It’s a mistake not to .

  1. Beautiful photos! Cloudy here in ‘my neck of the woods’ so I was not able to experience it first hand. My favorite is the last one, the road to nowhere (or everywhere) with the moon shining through the clouds, lovely.
