The Lunatic Is On The Grass.

Well, actually...I don't want to think about grass...I want to think about eclipses! I was up in the window for this most recent lunar event, because not only was I in the middle of a game, it was 4AM and by that time the only way to see the moon over the trees and rooftops was from the window.

(Clicking on the pictures gets the full-size versions, I highly recommend the first one.)

So there was a full moon on Monday:



Then there was an eclipse:



Then it got cloudy:



But the eclipsed moon peeked out just long enough to say goodnight before it fell into the neighbor's chimney:



It could be that my drooling love for the moon comes from the sign I was born under, or possibly from the multiple dog bites over the years, but I love eclipses. Throw one of those at me twice a year or so and I can live happily for at least two weeks.

Moonbow!!! Love that picture! How do you get cameras to take nighttime pix? Is it some shutterspeed or something?

I saw it by chance too but I only got a pic like the last one, except my hand kept shaking and blurring the tiny sliver of moon.
