Lunar Eclipse

There was a lunar eclipse last night. The next one won't occur until 2010, which sounds like it's really far away but that's only two years from now. (Actually, the eclipse is supposed to take place in December so it's closer to three years.) My husband and I took our daughter outside a couple of times so she could see it. Despite the crappy weather that the Philadelphia area has had for the past couple of weeks, the clouds parted and it was miraculously clear during the eclipse. While we didn't stay to watch the entire event, we did see the beginning and full eclipse. It was definitely something interesting to watch.
