And to show there’s always some truth in fiction, here is a photo my husband took of the lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019.

  1. Nicely done, Marie! And that photo…WOW! I tried to capture a few photos, but it was so cold, my hands were shaking.

      Thanks, Jill! My husband is better at tolerating the cold than I am. He went out to a park on the edge of town and I stayed home. I did run in and out of the house periodically to check on the progress. I was happy that I had a clear view through the pine trees and good binoculars. And happy that I could run back inside and warm up … lol.

  3. Whoa, what a combo–amazing fifty-worder and a crystal-clear photo of our red moon. Just as the total eclipse occurred, a nice set of clouds drifted right over the moon and stayed there. :-/

      Oh, Phillip, that is too sad that clouds obscured the total eclipse! Thank goodness for my husband and his photography 🙂 And thanks for your comment on my fifty-worder. It was fun!

  6. Nice! I didn’t even venture outside to take so much as a peek at the moon because I didn’t want to be cold.
