Double eclipse

I looked at the sky at 6:00 tonight as knitfriends in a Zoom bemoaned stormy skies on the east coast that meant they wouldn’t be seeing the red total lunar eclipse tonight. I didn’t say, Blue and clear and bright as could be here. (I did tell myself, don’t be smug.)

Cue the comeuppance of the fog coming in on little cat feet...

During an eclipse, you know it’s there, you just can’t see it. Tonight, we know it’s there being not-there while it’s there, we just can’t see not seeing it.

We had clouds, and tall pine trees obscuring our view.

I remember seeing one in college. It was a crystal clear sky, with nothing to block our view.

I was asleep long before it happened, but there were some great photos on Twitter this morning (one of the benefits of following the local weather person and Jim Cantore).

It was absolutely clear and amazing in Winnipeg. Worth staying up for…
