The grandson had to get up at 4 A.M. this morning for monthly inventory at work; and knowing he doesn't "rise and shine" easily, when I awoke and saw it was 3:30, I figured I'd get up and rouse him out of bed.
As I got up, Cliff awakened sufficiently to tell me there was supposed to be a lunar eclipse, and that I might want to check it out.
The timing was perfect! It's still going on, but the best part was between 4:30 and 5. There's a full moon, of course. so it's very impressive.
Trees block my view of the moon when it's in the lower west, so I had to go out in the yard and stand in the tree line on to see it, but it was well worth it.
