    So Pretty

    It is a clear night here. It is very cold. I have watched the eclipse throughout the night. I think it is romantic. If it weren't so cold I would have hubby out on a blanket showing him how romantic I think it is. Yep, that is one sexy moon tonight.

    I Found It Amazing

    it was really cool being shrouded in darkness for a few minutes and then being returned to light, a really unique experience

    Whoops It's A Practical Joke

    A few days ago I saw an article on an upcoming Lunar Eclipse. My husband loves such things so I sent him the article. (being a good wife right?) Well of course I didn't read it first, just noted that it was due on 4/25/13. Well I guess he only read the part I did about the date...

    What I Figure

    I assume that this group is just speaking of seeing any lunar eclipse in general. So under that assumption, the most memorable eclipse I have seen was in fourth grade during recess. Everyone in my class stopped, they stopped playing four square, playing hopscotch and chasing...

    It was awesome. Kindof makes you wonder what exactly is going on up there. I tried to take a picture but oddly enough my batteries kept dieing. They were brand new. I guess it is just one of thoses things you have to witness youself. I feel blessed to have witness the eclipse.

    Fleeting Beauty

    At that one brief second where the earth, the moon, and the sun are aligned in such a way, all seems to connect in that one second. Then just as quicly as it all makes sense we return to chaos.

    Ecliptic Dream

    The latest Lunar Eclipse happened just before I was scheduled to get off work. So, fortunately, when I requested Unpaid Leave for my last hour that night, I was awarded it. During the walk home, I kept looking upward at the eclipsed moon. Then, when I got home, I put a blanket on...

    December, and it was cold. The only near place I could get a good view without wires or naked tree limbs blocking the view was on the shoulder of the street in front of the house.I set the camera on the tripod, put on the long lens (which should have been at 300mm all night but...
