Because of Jude's posting about the video on Glennis' website, I decided to make an adventure of seeing the lunar eclipse this morning. I set 2 alarms, but could hardly sleep for fear I'd miss the show. At about 3 a.m. the full moon was high and bright in the sky, but clouds were hovering. This is the first photo I took at 5:06 a.m...
Here is the second, at 5:51:
This is the last I was able to take, at 5:53:
I wish I could show you how it looked suspended in the sky, glowing as if lit from within, but my camera couldn't pick up the soft light. I was down at the dogpark, where many had gathered for viewing. One couple had a special viewer set up for a close up look. Oh what a magical sight...our moon, waiting out earth's shadow. Shortly after 6:30, it became impossible to see any more of the display because of the haze, so I visited the water birds who were getting ready for their day:
Yesterday, I picked one of the last persimmons (sigh) with the picker:
and finished up the felted "Oystercatchers having a discussion about their relationship", to prepare for Open Studios this weekend!
That's all for now. Have a weekend to remember fondly, hopefully...
