Aw, Darn.

It looks like we aren't having much of a show as far as "eclipses" go. If you're a bit of an astro buff like me, go here to read a snippet of an article.

Some astro info: The photo above is a total lunar eclipse. The sun is behind the earth and it casts it's shadow upon the moon. But sometimes not all of the moon gets 'caught' in the earth's shadow, which makes it a "partial"lunar eclipse. A solar eclipse is when the moon comes in between the sun and the earth. The sun and the moon are (apparently) the same size in our view in the sky. (Even thought the sun is much bigger.) I don't know about you, but that is definately NOT a coincidence!

Drat! I've been penumbraed again! Does this mean someone has discovered another previously-unknown Constitutional right?

Okay, that was a bad joke. Arnold, not EVERYTHING has to be political...

Did you shoot that picture of the moon yourself? It's a great shot --

Jek (polaroid life): oooooh...let's go!



Mr. Q: Ha I understand the humor...lots of things can't help just being political.

Oh, no...I wasn't present for any recent lunar eclipseseses. Besides I don't have the necessary equipment to photograph such a "close" shot.

It is so beautiful though! ♥

Don't worry, there will be others. Some day you will be able to see one in China, or in Insatnbul! Who knows, you are still young, my friend.

Haha! I hope so. I think there are a few closer...east coast. It would be nice.
