You might, or might not, have experienced the excitement about last night’s moon, which was (a) super (b) blood and (c) blue. I’m not sure it was at its best in Canberra. I can assure you the below is last night’s moon in Canberra and the bats are local.   I took a photo of the bluish but non-blood super moon about 930 and when I looked again at about 11 it was all rather cloudy, moonless in fact.  At 930 I had noticed several flying foxes floating about but it was impossible to line one up with the super moon.  To remedy that,  this afternoon  I made a visit to Cth Park which has a colony of 5000 FFs and found it easy to snap a few relocating between the treetops.  So, there I was with 3 pre-eclipse moon photos and about 200 flying  flying fox snaps.  As it happened I remembered the splendid blood moon from a few years ago and was able to add that effect to the 930 moon and add the FFs, with the below result.
