Lunar Eclipse

Endymion’s revenge:
the moon’s bright eye is shut,
and on its ashen lid
I see red shadows lie.

      My kids and I were out there for hours–it was extremely cool. Quite literally: a pretty chilly night hereabouts. But a clear one.

        It was in the low 20’s here, but no wind, thank goodness.

        She returned to unimpeded skies, so bright we wouldn’t have needed the street lights.

        Love, C.

          Excellent. I think my daughter got some pretty good pictures; if they came out (and I can get her permission), I may post them here.

          It was -10F here, but it was worth standing outside. In my experience, it’s pretty rare that celestial events happen at 9pm and in a cloudless sky. Great show.

            A month of unpredictable weather. Nearly 70 one day last week; yesterday was my most unfavorite sort of day — significantly below freezing and that hard glare. Today we’re having a snowstorm — at least until it turns into rain later, if ‘they’ are right. We’ve got about 5 inches so far — nothing at all like our friends in Wisconsin and Maine though, sitting under nearly a 100 inches of accumulation since New Year.

            Love, C.

            Now that’s real winter. I know what you mean about the sky cooperating: the heavens were pretty murky around here when we last has a lunar eclipse.
