West Coast Super Blood Moon Blogging

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


You didn’t think I’d just ignore this, did you? Of course not. So here’s my contribution to super blood moon blogging. This was taken at 8:24 pm, just as the moon was starting to come out of full eclipse. Luckily, all our cloud cover was to the west, and the east was nice and clear. The exposure apparently tested the outside limits of my little catblogging camera, and the color shifted considerably from shot to shot—sometimes red, sometimes a sort of orangey rust, sometimes a bit purplish. That’s what you get with a cheap camera and residential streets, I guess. Enjoy.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
