Last night my husband and I were watching the end of a series. We both said we were feeling pretty tired and planned to hit the hay early. I reminded him about the Super Moon eclipse and I said may be we could get a quick glimpse of it. I checked the internet and found that it had just begun. We changed out of our p.j.s and climbed into our car, headed to a park about 15 minutes away. Suprisingly, the sky was clear despite what the weathermen had been saying. It was a comfortable evening with a sweatshirt. When we got to the park there were about five other groups hanging out sitting on the wooden barrier near the parking lot. We sat down and watched the “show”. It was truly amazing. The eclipse had just started. Interesting that our earlier fatigue seemed to have vanished as we watched the spectacle. Towards the end of the eclipse there seemed to be light that was reflecting off the back of the moon. It looked like a tail of light. The color of the moon was a beautiful red.
What made it truly memorable was my husband was texting our daughters about where we were. My oldest daughter was on a mountain in NH watching the eclipse. My younger daughter was on the roof of her building in NYC. To know we were together watching the same thing at the same time made it all the more magical.
