Eclipse!

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.

I think it must have been worth getting out of bed for .  We miss so many of the wonderful gifts God gives us.  Glad you got out there to see it.  What a great start for the day.  Hope you get a little nap later on.  'On Ya' - ma

I saw it for a moment and it was behind a tree.  But it was cool regardless.  I was up at 5am.
