We have a beautiful clear night as well. As you said, so many stars visible.

There are days when I wish I could shut my phone off. But Spike has had eight heart attacks and I just can't. I never know when or if I will get that call.

Right now I am getting ready to start my least favorite chore. Get my list ready for grocery shopping. Have to go on line to look at the flyers.

What are you doing?

The moon was gorgeous. I even got out the binoculars.

I had to keep zipping out during commercials, it was the final episode of CSI.

Grandson Josh and I just came in the house from watching the red colored moon. So glad we got to see it together.

We had a perfect view of it for the start and for totality. It had an orange ring until totality and then the whole thing turned orange. Then it clouded over. I can see the moon again, but totality is over. Not complaining, 'cause I got to see the important bits.

You can see it live here. They keep switching where they are showing from. Kinda neat.

There was a nice break in the clouds and I was able to see it when I walked out to the mailbox. Absolutely beautiful!
Thank you for the link, Taxy. I saved it and will look at it tomorrow. Tired tonight.

We also enjoyed the moon tonight. It was so peaceful sitting on our dark front porch with a couple glasses of wine, and the beautiful view of the moon coming over our mountain. Our sweet neighbor joined us, as we had the best view from our front porch. Simple pleasures...

I am old enough to have seen several sun and moon eclipses. I was going to go out to see it, but I am forever cold, and decided inside was better and seeing a repeat.

I'm plenty old enough to have seen several sun and moon eclipses too, but they never fail to amaze me. At my age, it may be the last I ever see, and I sure wouldn't want to miss the last one of my life.
