lunar eclipse

For those of you that live in the northern Hemisphere I hope you were able to see the lunar eclipse. If not here is what you missed…. at about 11 pm Pacific time I went out side and looked up in wonder at the shadow of the earth slowly hiding the moon. As I stood there looking up in awe and wonder,I noticed as the moon was slowly hidden by the shadow of the earth, the temp started to drop even more in the high desert of Reno Nevada. The stars that you would not normally see during a full moon started to appear crisp and clear. At almost totality I watched a meteor streak over head just to right of the moon and then a screech owl flew across the face of it, and the pond water creaked and cracked as it froze. A few minutes went by and then something amazing happened the stars seemed to just jump out in brightness as the the moon was totally covered by the shadow of the earth and another meteor streaked all the way across the sky leaving behind little sparkles of dust as it burned up. To answer that question that some of you might ask,no I didn’t bring out my camera the whole time. I figured even a camera could not capture the beauty that was taking place over head. The next event of this kind will not happen in our life times,but if you did see it, it is something to tell your grand children about.
