As regular readers of this blog may know, we love astronomical events here at Our Little Acre. Whenever there's something unusual (or even usual) going on in the sky, you can find us out in the backyard craning our necks to look skyward.
Last night, there was an exceptionally good opportunity to see a total lunar eclipse during a full moon. The sky was crystal clear, making for perfect viewing, but that also meant it was frigidly cold. 9° cold. But that didn't stop me from going out and snapping a few pictures.
I did try opening a window in the family room and taking a few from there, during which time Baby made a jailbreak and jumped outside. Needless to say, her trip outside didn't last long. She isn't used to cold like that.
