Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse 20th Feb 2008

Last night we got to see something really cool--a lunar eclipse. We went out every 5 minutes or so to see how the eclipse was going. It got darker and darker and soon the moon was completely gone. A little later we went out to see the moon start to reappear.

Using some of my play balls, Daddy showed me how the Earth cast a big shadow on the moon by getting in between it and the sun. It was very neat!

Hi, Aidan,

The eclipse came too late for me to see it in Pennsylvania. I had to get up early this AM for my Clinical, so I had to be in bed early last night.

However, we are having a snowstorm, so Clinical is cancelled and I have today free!
