Hunter’s Moon and the Brooklyn Bridge

Sunday, Oct. 16, the Hunter’s Moon rose over NYC. The Hunter’s Moon is the full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the one closest to the fall equinox. The Hunter’s Moon is also called the Blood Moon, and this year it rose big and red. A bunch of us, led by the indomitable Keith Michael, wanted to see it from the Brooklyn Bridge, so we did.

Finally, the Hunter’s Moon.

It rises through the cables of the Manhattan Bridge, in the distance.

The higher it goes, the more color it loses.

In the cables, it looks doubled.

Then the Man in the Moon just looks confused.

Finally, peering into other peoples’ windows through the reflections in their glass, we head off the bridge and home.

    WOW. The “just taking pictures” bridge photos are stunning.

    Lovely! Really nice.
    Next time I’ll meet you in the middle.

    Were there herds of other people on the bridge admiring the sunset and the moon rise?

  7. SJ Rozan says:

    Michael — Great!

    JL — Really, not. Lots of people walking across, lots of tourists taking photos, but not particularly for the Hunter’s Moon. We had to point it out to some who wondered what we were madly photographing.
