Lunar Eclipse


Mom, my brother Ben and I watched the eclipse last night. For those who missed it, it was absolutely gorgeous! It was totally worth staying awake until 3:00am.(although my home-school group teacher might not have appreciated my 'quality of schoolwork' today :-)


A full moon. Before the eclipse.

Beginning of the eclipse. It's hard to see in the picture, but the left side is shadowed.


Ending of the eclipse.
 

Blood moon. A little hard to see!


Ben and I. We took  quilts and blankets onto the deck and made a "bed" next to the telescope.

  2. Oh neat! My sister & I thought of setting our alarm and getting up to see it, but then decided that we were too tired to do it. :)

  3. We were able to see it. We got up around midnight and were able to take pictures with a great zoomed camera, and see it through a telescope. It was amazing!!!
