Did anyone see the moon last night? Did you get a good view of the eclipse from where you live? Apparently, we aren't actually in the viewing zone, but as we turned into our neighborhood after the puppet show last night, I saw the moon over the trees, and it was so big and so orange that I slammed on the brakes to get a longer look. When we got home, I ran out to find a good place to see it. There are so many tall trees here that it's hard to see much of the sky. Finally I found a spot at the foot of our neighbor's driveway, and called the rest of the family out to look. Mary was as excited as I was and wanted to take a picture. Our camera isn't really meant for taking pictures of the moon, but at least it shows how orange it was. Even if it wasn't the eclipse, it was stunning.
