Dark Side of the Moon

I hope you were outside or near a window, and looking up last night. From where Phineas and I watched the eclipse, the sky was clear and the moon turned a vivid orange during the totality (that is when the moon is fully in the earth's shadow). Saturn and Regulus were visible.

Standing outside, I experienced one of those moments when your other senses silence themselves and all your awareness focuses on one thing. Your thoughts and memories become quiet, and the world is still. Beautiful. Calm. Serene.

Sadly, there won't be another total lunar eclipse until 21 December 2o1o.
