One of my earlier childhood memories is from a long night drive around Lake Tahoe. An eclipse had turned the moon blood red and I stared at it —at once intensely and dreamily.
Last night that memory came flooding back (like the tide?) as I took these photos of the red moon from the other side of our planet.
I could also see the Red Planet and Saturn in the same little slice of visible from my courtyard.
(Look closely for a tiny dot in the upper right corner of the last photo for Saturn. It might look like dust on you computer screen).

To the modern mind, a glitch is an unwanted artifact, a momentary interruption of
expected behavior produced by a faulty system. In an instant it changes the user’s
relationship with that system. A glitch instills suspicion, indicating the system is
unreliable, corrupted, not to be trusted.
“A cluster of glitches can form an outline, define an area, trace a route through
uncharted space. ”
