Blood Red Moon. Sort of.

The wind was howling and the tide was high as I went outside in search of the lunar eclipse the other night.  An atavistic call to commune with the cosmos stirred within and I responded.

 It was quite cloudy, so instead of seeing the blood red moon everyone was anticipating, it mysteriously drifted into a gauze- like mist. Suddenly and completely unexpectedly, a skinny coyote appeared on the shore and a troubled man cursed me out. I am not kidding. Beasts and humans alike could not resist this mighty celestial pull.

While the red moon may have ducked out of sight behind west coast clouds, I nevertheless had an extraordinary lunar, or was that - lunatic encounter.
