Eclipse

I obviously don't have an awesome camera, but this here is my photo of tonight's lunar eclipse.



If it makes you happier, you can just pretend it's a fingernail clipping and you can stop reading.

At about 9:30 tonight I decided to let in the barking dog from outside and check out the eclipse. After I figured out that you can't see the moon from my backyard, I went to the front door and looked out to see a less-blurry version of what you see above.

This being my house, Sam and Jack—who had "gone to bed" at 7:30—were still awake. I dragged them to the front door and tried to explain what was happening.

Jack, aka Mr. Space, decided that an eclipse is "silly."

But ever since then, we've been periodically checking on its progress. It's pretty cool. Jack in particular thinks it's pretty neat.

You'll have to excuse me, I think we're almost at a total eclipse of the moon. I'm going back to check out the wonder of the solar system.

  1. Darn, I meant to go out last night and check it out. That's awesome that your boys got to see it even if they weren't too impressed! LOL

  2. We also watched it. Bubba kept asking questions but would tell me "that's too many words!" when I answered him. So I just kept saying "That's earth's shadow on the moon." I love the moon. :)

  3. Wasn't that Cool??????????
    I don't think I've ever seen one before b/c they're always at like 3am... I think... am I making that up?

    We didn't wake Conor up b/c he got tubes in his ears at 8am this morning... he's doing great... Now.

    AND - one more thing- your picture is better than the one I took :)

  4. Did I not comment on this? That was a great picture.

    Fingernail clipping, though? Snort.
