While the rest of Europe is still in the ice age, Athens is enjoying some great early spring weather. I’m not bragging 😉

Ενώ η υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη βρίσκεται ακόμα στην  εποχή των παγετώνων, η Αθήνα απολαμβάνει εξαιρετικές πρώιμες ανοιξιάτικες καιρικές συνθήκες. 


Super Blue Blood Red Moon



The “Supermoon” went from blood red to yellow.


The yellow “Supermoon”.


Today was the day the ‘supertrifecta’: blue moon, supermoon and total lunar eclipse occurred all at once, the last time this happened was 150 years ago!

Here in Greece, I was able to see the moon clearly and I saw the full moon change hues from red to yellow ocher. But, I didn’t see any blue hues on the moon. People who live in East Asia, Australia, and the West coast of North America will see this extremely rare supermoon a lot more clearly.

The phrase ‘once and a blue moon’ comes to mind and I think that we can expect a lot of changes with this rare moon. I believe the changes have already affected me because I did a good job of cleaning and organizing my bedroom 😉

Solar Storm


This cloud looks like a shark! Looks like a poster for the movie ‘Sharknado’!


Looks like a human face, but at a different angle it looks like my cat!


On the day of the Solar eclipse we had an incredible lightning storm in Athens. Storms like this one are a rare occurrence at this time of the year here in Athens. So, naturally I swung my camera into action, but those bolts were too quick for me. I did manage to get one lucky shot though as well as photos of weird faces in the clouds.

Lightning noun ‘a brilliant electric spark discharge in the atmosphere, occurring within a thundercloud, between clouds, or between a cloud and the ground.’
