Red Moon breaking news live report from the Netherlands

on Facebook it is the talk of the town
friends living down under upside down
this unique outburst of the universe
clouds hopefully won't organize a curse
suddenly a message coming through
from a member of the huge ground crew
their red moon struggling with the clouds
but still trying to please the head-lifting crowds
the mighty clouds going their own way
unfortunately not avoiding the Gold Coast bay
out of sight for a moment her big red ball of fire
hoping for the return of that glorious squire
more clouds gathering across the big red balloon
she reports: "I've lost my bloody moon"

(c) Elly Wouterse.

Witnessing form a distance (Netherlands and Australia being positioned on the opposite 
side of the earth) but being differently yet for sure personally  connected with this eclipse.................... and sharing the moment with a dear friend down under.

    geeez, Elly. I went outside last night and looked all around the sky, first from back side of my house and then the front. The moon was nowhere to be seen. Every time there is a blue moon or some kind of eclipse, I try to see it and never am I able to see these kinds of phenomena. GRRRR

    I wish all live reports could rhyme like that! Very inventive work. Bev
