Total Lunar Eclipse

On February 13th there was a total lunar eclipse which Sam and I stayed up to watch... the first 1/2 anyway. It was a beautifully clear night but *very* cold... as in *minus* 13 degrees. This made picture taking a bit chilly. But we managed! To read about the lunar eclipse go to NASA. We took the following pictures.

Woops! Once the moon "turned" orange-y I had to play with the camera, apparently I do not have a steady hand.

A bit blurry from coming inside out of the cold but Sam used a spotting scope to try and get a better view.

Sam looking outside before we got too cold. Fortunately for me I was able to watch it from the window inside. It was really beautiful.
