As humans began to roam the Earth, when the full moon was shaded by some not understood phenomena, those ancients ascribed all sorts of meaning to the event.
We now, of course, understand the Earth casts it shadow on the Moon, shading it from the Sun’s rays.
Such an event is coming to Seattle for your viewing pleasure on October 8, 2014. The event, from the lightest shade of grey, then to a dark amber, back to a light shade of grey will last almost five hours.
Beginning at a few minutes after 1:00 PM, look in the South South-west sky for the show to start. You will see a light grey shadow pass over the Moon. It is not a fast process. The dark amber shading does not begin until about 2:15 pm and it will take about 1 ½ hours to cross the face of the Moon. The dark amber shading will last about 45 minutes. Then the process reverses itself. The show will end about 6:30 PM.
Now, will someone arrange a cloudless afternoon, please?

Naturally, the Knowles Team would like to claim credit for the show. We can’t, of course. We don’t control the Sun, the Moon, and the stars.
However, we do have great dominion over Seattle’s real estate market. Call us when you are ready!
