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.
