Did you see it?

I woke at 1:30am and woke DH and we stayed up to see the eclipse and the red moon; beautiful clear skies and not a bit cold. We opened the bedroom window wide as the double glazing was giving us a double moon!!  DH went down stairs to go outside on the front lawn with his binoculars and camera.  We watched as the earth's shadow gradually crept across the moon.
It took 90mins!
Here is one of the photographs that DH took as it was happening.
 
 This is a professional photograph, DH camera wouldn't give as clear a picture.
  
We went back to bed just after 3! Well it won't happen again till 2033 and even if I will be still alive I guess at 91 I will be happy to stay in a warm comfy bed!!
I think I will be having a nanny nap this afternoon, but it was worth it.
Yawning already!

I completely forgot about it, I think I was still too excited about the rugby. I had a busy day in the garden as well ans was nodding off over my crochet.

We were camping in a dark zone and my husband woke me up in time to see the eclipse. It was fab. x

I was SO mad! It's been clear skies for weeks on end! Sunday night? Cloudy and overcast!! I was SO bummed!! I'm glad you got to see it, though! How awesome!

We were lucky to see this at 4am! Only because for some reason I woke up without any alarm - it was meant to be :-D Very eerie, but I am so pleased we saw it. I said to my kids that they will probably be parents the next time it comes (they looked at me with utter disdain!). Have a wonderful weekend xx

There's something satisfying about seeing an unique event like this. I didn't see it which made your post even more enjoyable as I felt I shared in the event.
