Did anyone see the lunar eclipse last night? When I headed out to my friend's house last night I thought it was going to be too cloudy to see it, and I was sad because I love stuff like this. Then we had the meeting, and of course it went later than we'd all expected (till 11; since we started at 7 we didn't think it would be much later than 10, which is I think when the eclipse began) so we thought we'd missed it. Being a bunch of homeschooling moms, we were all quite upset by this!
But as we headed out to our cars I happened to look up--and there it was! It wasn't total anymore, but it was still an obvious eclipse. It looked like a crescent moon, but then you could see the rest of the moon in shadow with a ring of light around the outside. It was very pretty and there were stars (planets maybe?) scattered right around the moon, crystal clear. I just wish it had been warmer than 15 degrees so I could have stayed out to watch it a while! I did take a few photos after I got home, but honestly I'm not sure you can tell it's even the moon--I'll have to put it n the computer to check, because on the camera screen it just looks vague.
I hope you got to see this lovely sight!
