My View For Awhile: Westward

I had some apprehension about airport security this morning because of the Shutdown™?. Sure enough, check in was mobbed. Having priority status helped and the line moved well. TSA was stacked up, but I really have to hand it to them. The line moved faster and the agents were more cheerful and courteous then when they are being paid.

Leaving the Cupboard Under The Stairs this morning, and pulling onto the exit road, I saw to the West your planet’s setting moon, a deep orange mass giving red overtones to a thin layer of intervening cloud. One could almost reach to squeeze the Sicilian blood from its rind.

Meanwhile, FedEx planes are taking off one after the other. What an amazing system we have.

UPDATE

I just saw the cockpit light up. A good sign.

UPDATE

Coffee was ready for the fore cabin and phones are doinking with alerts that our impedimenta has been loaded below.

UPDATE

Some sharing options...

    I think where Fr Z is, he won’t be able to view the Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse tomorrow ( today?) night. Thank you for that graphic description of the setting moon, Father Z!
