The planet Mars was also very visible. We were able to watch from our yard... in the city. We didn't get great pictures, but we had fun watching and taking pictures.
It was COLD..... below freezing.... and there we were with pajamas and a bathrobe....then we added a coat.... then a heated rice bag looped over then neck(Oh, that felt good!).
Click the Rice Bags above (that is a link though it doesn't look like one) to see what I mean by rice bags.... and how to make them.
One son was only up for part of the time.... he said to show him pictures in the morning....he was going to bed! :) He slept through the first hour or so until his iphone alerted him to a new email .... and the sound was SciFi.... I told him to be sure to turn it OFF tonight! I'm glad we were all up when that tone went off. :) He stayed up with us for a while.......then went back to bed.
We warmed the rice bags back up and went to bed....... with an extra quilt. It's funny how the chill sets in AFTER being under the covers. Brrrr. But after the chill wore off, the heat felt wonderful and all agreed that the sleep for the rest of the night was the best of the whole night.
From what my husband said, we will have the opportunity to see a red moon again in the fall, then twice next year and then........ it won't happen again for 400 years. It was worth the lost sleep.
This world that God made is so wonderful.... so much to see and appreciate. I love helping my children to see and appreciate it from a Biblical viewpoint.
