Lunar Eclipse

Tonight we had a lunar eclipse. It was expected to be quite spectacular with the moon slowly eclipsing from 7pm to 8pm and then turning a deep shade of red.

Because it was before the kids bedtime they got to watch it with us. Gareth was petrified. We kept talking about the moon disappearing and he thought that it was going to disappear forever plunging us into total darkness! He was very relieved when he saw that it was just a different colour!

It was a fabulously clear night and we had a great view out our back door. It got really eerie when the moon was just disappearing as the local dogs started to howl! Very atmospheric!

Here are some photos I took...
