The weather cooperated here, sort of. I was able to watch the Moon enter the shadow almost completely before the clouds thickened up again & the rain
came back. There was too much cloud cover for me to be able to see the red-brown color this time out, dammit.
Yes, I also felt an electrical kind of excitement in the air; a lunar eclipse always gives me a thrill, but this time there was an almost joyful feel
to it, despite the cold night air & poor visibility. Of course, at my age, that feeling could be due to the fact that I've lived long enough to see
yet another one of these awesome events.
I'll keep an eye out from my window, & if the clouds break up again in time, it's back up to the roof for me. Nice to have seen as much of it as I
did. It was more than I thought I'd get this time around.
It's also nice to know there are others for whom this is a major event, and a helluva rush, others who haven't lost that sense of wonder in spite of
all that goes on in this life to grind it out of us.
