Moon ...

Er, Lunar Eclipse, not Lunar Ellipse. Anyway. Crisp, beautiful, in the early stages a hard edged shadow crept across its face. At full dark, it was like an overripe peach, painted deep red and amber. If it weren't for the wet humid air, I'd think we're due for a santa anna tomorrow... I'm not used to it being this clear at night. Easily the best eclipse I've seen yet... out of several.

And you're not posting a picture BECAUSE...????

Rob got up to see it, but the view from our house apparently sucked. Bah.

I thought about trying to get a snap, but my old digital camera is just wonky. And it would have had to go through one side of a pair of binoculars anyway... and turned out awful. :)
