    The dark side of the moon.

    I've just come from sitting on my porch, watching the moon put on a show.
    Down under, we are experiencing a lunar eclipse.

    I rode out to North head around dusk, where there are great views of Sydney harbour. A few hours were spent there watching the full moon slowly get darker, before it turned a sort of red. There was a small crowd up on the headland, making an evening of it with nibbles & wine.

    Now I'm at home, watching the light return to the moon.

    Have a happy evening everyone.

    No, I didn' manage any pix, as I only have a "film" camera (I'm a bit old-fashioned that way).
    For a while there, the moon did have a little bit of cloud over it, but luckily it didn't stay long.


    Happy riding

    Raleighdonson came to our bedroom at 2:30am this morning to inform us that the sky was clear.
    So I got to see it too.

    Conditions were perfect here in central Indiana -- not a cloud in the sky! All four of us parked ourselves in the middle of the front yard at 4:45 a.m., just as the moon was entering the umbra. Watched 'til the middle of the eclipse at 6:30, at which point the sun was coming up so things were no longer visible. Aah, science lesson out of the way for this homeschool mom!!
