Much excitement in the photographic community all over the world today. Full moon, blue moon, blood moon and lunar eclipse, all in one. Clouds are forecast for Tokyo however, and I'll be either at work or commuting underground when the main action happens...what to do?
Last time this sort of thing happened was in 2014. By sheer coincidence, I was photographing the moon in Brisbane, my friend was photographing in Tokyo and later we got to compare shots. The difference was amazing, you do see different surfaces of the moon depending on whether you are in the north or south. And I know that that is the way it is but to see it in those pics...just intriguing.
Anyway, I prepared a non-lunar pic just in case nothing came about today, tonight. There is still a bit of snow around and more on the way...
And sometimes I do have that internal debate about whether to post or not to post

Even down to the moon setting through the window, which is technically tomorrow's pic of the day, but all part of the same phenomenon. Besides, it was still 31 January somewhere in the world when I took it.
