I did not take this photo. It was taken by John (Gianni) Raineri in 2007. But at 3:40 this morning, it’s what the moon looked like in my sky, even with the little stars.
I woke up to see the lunar eclipse on the winter solstice, a rare event, and one that will never happen again in my lifetime. But I didn’t go to the trouble of setting up the tripod. I can tell you that it’s beautiful. And so different.
I’ve been watching it for an hour now (and waiting for George to come back inside – darn dog will not come when I call him and it’s freezing out there).
I have to be up in less than two hours because a friend is coming to meet me here and we’re leaving for NYC to visit my son. Woot! We’re also going to see my blogging buddy, Daryl. By the time you read this, I’ll be on the road and am so excited to visit the city at Christmastime. I’ll be home on Wednesday.
Hope to get some nice photos to share with you. Have a beautiful day, all!
