It seems apropos that I decorated for Halloween on the weekend of the lunar eclipse; the eerie red moon provided the perfect atmosphere for the gathering of skeletons on the porch.
The human gathering in the back yard was slightly less creepy. Hugh, The Teenager, the Man-Cub and I viewed the eclipse from the comfort of lawn chairs. The weather was unseasonably warm, so we watched it from the start all the way through the blood moon stage before calling it a night.
I didn't get any pictures of the eclipse, but it's not something that I will forget anytime, soon; I love the night sky and all of it's mysteries.
