2011 Total Eclipse of the Moon


My granddaughter set her alarm for 4am--We rode to Windy Cove and sat on a log, all wrapped up in coats and blankets. There were wispy clouds and haze, then the sky was clear--the moon a dark coppery orange with a bright crescent smile. I was amazed that the moon really did completely vanish at the moment of the total eclipse--no sign of it at all! At that moment the clouds or the marine layer moved in so quickly that we knew we wouldn't see the moon's reappearance. Back home for some more sleep.
