Like so many people last Sunday we were looking forward to staying up and watching the eclipse, the kids especially! As the day went on it started to get cloudy and I wasn’t sure if we would miss this one again. At about 8 pm the clouds started to break up. Woohoo!
My camera isn’t very good at taking night photos so I decided to try my phone. It didn’t do to bad but the full moon came out as bright white instead of picking up the beautiful grey markings we could see.
The clouds started to come back in around 8:30 so we decided that we would head back inside and check again in a little while. Well we got busy doing things and forgot! By the time I remembered to come back outside and have a look the moon was half covered in the shadow.
The blood moon was just beautiful to watch! We all stayed up until around 11pm after that it was just to cold to be outside any longer since the wind was picking up. We had all been sick the week before and it wasn’t worth it to stay out and get sick all over again.
Where you able to get a good look at the eclipse? I hope you were able to enjoy this amazing event!
