Clear and Cold for the Lunar Eclipse April 4th! =)

My husband and I ventured out to the Witte Observatory Complex Saturday about 4 AM to view the eclipse.  The temperatures dropped to 28 F ~ but it was well worth it!  The video and pics I took are "alright" but they just don't do the "event" justice.  I think one of the coolest things is to use binoculars to watch as the Moon passes into the umbral part of the Earth's shadow.  How totally cool!!!

A couple of pics taken after we got home ;)




A handful of pics =)  The Moon looks so darn "flat"




Here's the video I made ;)


Though not quite what I want it to be yet.... here's a quick video of Saturn captured during the eclipse <3

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
