On Monday evening we stayed up late (but not much later than normal... ha!) to check out the red moon. We had some clouds but they weren't bad, so we had a nice view of the moon gradually becoming eclipsed and then turning red! Opa managed to grab a nice picture from the back porch:
This past weekend we watched some Ted-Ed videos about lunar eclipses, so the kids were ready/excited to check it out. Viva decided to draw the eclipse:
Bentley avidly watched it, and Jake... well, Jake participated. His formal opinion is that watching the moon for an hour is not terribly exciting. I believe there was a comment about it being as exciting as watching grass grow. I objected, as I don't normally see significant grass growth in the space of just one hour! :)
If you want to learn more about the lunar eclipse tetrad, of which this was the first event, you can check out a short video here. Fun stuff!
