Blood moon decorates Clearwater sky

JIM DAMASKE   |   Times


The total lunar eclipse, called the blood moon by some, decorated the sky over Clearwater early Tuesday morning, with the bright blue star Spica in the constellation Virgo just below the moon and to the right. While some were saying the eclipse is a harbinger of change, others were noting it's the first of a tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. The next one will be on Oct. 4.
