The Lunar Eclipse

Did you stay up to watch the lunar eclipse last night?? 


I went to bed, set my alarm, and got back up at 1:30 am with a few of the kids to observe this rare phenomenon.  We would go outside and take a peek, rush back inside to warm up and post a status on Facebook, and then go outside for another look at the disappearing moon!  :)  We repeated this until 3:30 am, when we finally went back to bed and got some sleep!  It was fun!!!


I attempted a few pictures . . . but they aren't much, since I only have a simple point and shoot camera.  Nevertheless, here they are:

I'm so glad you were able to enjoy God's creation in such a personal way! :)
Ben shares Burlin's love of astronomy....they enjoy getting out the telescope and looking at the moon, stars, and planets.
God is truly amazing!

I woke up at 1:30 just because I woke up (didn't plan on it) and I decided to go out to watch. Right before it started I could see the moon but then the clouds took over and I didn't get to see it :( I'm so happy you all were able to enjoy the wonder of our universe and the glory of our God!
