A Less-Than-Scientific Explanation....


In anticipation of the lunar eclipse next week, I present you with my collage today.  Here, our new friend Madame Noire is travelling from one point to the other in a Moon Balloon, trailing the haunting scent of black roses behind her.  What a lovely way to travel!  And with contraptions like this floating around up there, how do we really know that the "scientific" explanation of what will temporarily block our view of The Moon is actually the real one?  Perhaps Madame Noire's diaphanous red scarf will trail out behind her, giving the appearance of The Blood Moon?  Who knows?

(This is my submission for the collage challenge at The Three Muses.  The prompt was "Transportation".  Images I used in my collage came from Tumble Fish Studios and Itkupilli.)

Don't forget to keep your eyes open for the eclipse on April 14th-15th!
