Thanks to the morning news from yesterday I set my alarm and awoke to see the “blood moon” produced by the lunar eclipse that is a rather rare occurrence. At first, when I went outside to see it at 3:15 am, I was thinking to myself that I must be quite the fool. Then, when I didn’t hear another breathing soul in the streets of my neighborhood I realized that my suspicions must be true. Five minutes after watching it and heading back to bed I figured that while I was a fool I could at least check it off of my list, along with Haley’s Comet. Then I just downloaded the photos from my camera and decided that it was actually pretty cool to see and I am glad I did it.
This picture probably doesn’t do it justice, so hopefully when I have more time to mess with the video and photos I can edit something to help show how cool it really was.
