We (the adults and the Bigs) had the pleasure of waking up at 6 am today in order to catch a glimpse of the so-called “Blood Moon.” The total lunar eclipse was was the second red moon of this year.

Nate thought it was “amazing” and said he’d never seen anything like it. Sammi only lasted a few moments in the cold before she was inside under some covers. It is most definitely Autumn.

Also exciting was getting a really good look at Orion!



Aaron originally heard about the event via Minnesota Public Radio. The Bigs and I enjoyed watching a ScienceCasts from NASA video yesterday in preparation for our morning viewing.
