September 27th was a marvelous night for a moondance as the Super Blood Moon rose over Camelback Mountain in Phoenix at a little after 6 pm. It was Tony’s idea to go to the top floor of Biltmore Fashion Park’s parking garage. And, oddly, only a few other people had the same idea. It was truly [click that⇒] fantabulous!  We stayed for the whole event.



We were very lucky here in AZ to have clear skies. It was the best eclipse I’ve ever seen!


This morning…2 mornings after the awesome spectacle…
