For those of you who've been asleep for the last few days and did not go out after dark last night, we had a Total Lunar Eclipse! If you missed it, don't despair...there will be another one in December of 2010!
Now, please do not laugh at my photography skills. I really don't think my Sony Cyber-shot was made to take pictures of items 238,857 miles away...at night. And in case you're wondering how I know how far away the moon is, I asked my new favorite website: WikiAnswers.
This picture, although blurry, shows the beautiful colors of the moon last night.
And here's another shot, taken with the same setting, but the colors didn't come through nearly as vibrant.
The kids and I had fun watching the eclipse after church last night. Neal was in bed in a self-induced Nyquil coma. He said at one point a noise woke him up and he said "oh, good, the Navy shot down that satellite." Ahhhh, Nyquil...
