Moon over my porch...

                  Last night I watched the entire lunar eclipse from my porch. I found it fascinating. The earth so slowly came between the moon and the sun then just as slowly  moved away. This will not happen again until 2033. I could not stop observing. I stayed out on the porch til near midnight. I took a lot of pictures. Some turned out many did not. I realize I need to learn more about the the settings on my camera. It was a lovely night in da U.P. Mild weather for late September.

I finished Stephan King's 11/22/63. I held my breath, felt sympathy for the characters and was horrified by the turn of events. Mr. King at his storytelling  best.

  1. OH WOW Lil, this is amazing! I am going to share this on my Flickr if you don't mind. So many people are asking if anyone got any good pictures of it. We saw it and tried to take a picture, but I don't have a powerful enough zoom on my camera. I told Hannah that if you saw it, you would take great pictures of it and I was right!

  2. Thank you!! I stayed outside the whole time!
