So did you and your children get to watch the lunar eclipse this past Sunday?
The previous 2 lunar eclipses my daughter and I had made plans to watch, but both times the weather didn’t co-operate.
The first time we were going to meet some friends at a boat dock for a middle of the night picnic eclipse viewing party. It rained. And the second time it was just too cloudy. We ended up watching it online which does have its perks as you get to see the moon closer up and you learn quite a bit from the commentary.
This time was our first time seeing it live. My daughter was quite tired but she was determined to stay awake and watch it. She had a comfortable bed set up in the backyard with a pillow and nice warm blanket. It was a nice moment being able to lie back under the sky and watch it with her. The next total lunar eclipse won’t happen until she’s 23, so this truly was a rare opportunity.
I tried to take some photos, I should have set my camera up on a tripod but I didn’t. After the last image you see below, it went cloudy, so we had to go in.
