The evening is cold and clear, the moon having risen here in the east in its full-bodied glory while the sky was still streaked with shades of pale pink and blue.
The eclipse began only a half-hour or so ago. Here is a blurry photograph of what I saw just a few minutes before I sat at the laptop. We're just a little over an hour away from the full eclipse.
I've always been so fascinated by astronomical events. Looking up into the vast expanse of the night sky puts so much into perspective for me.
Excuse me while I go gaze some more.
