We have a very puny telescope, but with a moon so big and bright on a clear night, we had a great view. We could see light and shadow, mountains and craters.
The boys love looking through the telescope to see the moon, and A was so excited about the lunar eclipse.
Both boys did fall asleep after a bit, and somehow, just as it was time for the last of the blackness to creep across the shining sliver remaining, A woke up and came in to watch.
I stayed inside to photograph the moon, since it is -5ºF right now. Well, actually I did try to step out at the very end, but the door was frozen shut, so I figured that was a sign. To stay inside. Warm. I kind of like my reflected view of the moon though - achieved by taking photos through double pane glass.
