{A Galileo Night ...}

In order to see the moon (like you see above)



You need something powerful ...
Maybe like the telescope shown on the beach above??!
(That looks like a fun time - telescope on the beach!!)
Anyhow ...
Tonight's total lunar eclipse has been an awesome wonder indeed!! My youngest son, Kaleb, received a telescope for Christmas and he decided we needed to try it out on tonight's 'moon events' ...

{Lesson Learned}
After many attempts to zoom in on the moon, we decided a little more high-tech scope would be helpful.... Let's just say that the telescopes from Toys R Us are perfect for pretending to be Galileo!

Ahhhhhhhh what a beautiful night. Cheers to the moon and the beauty of the SKY ...

Dang it! I missed it. I meant to see it, but we've been taken down with the flu and sleep has been a little more important these days. I guess I'll just have to wait until 2010!

Alyson, Hi, nice to hear from you! I hope the flu leaves you alone and that your entire family will get back to feeling better ASAP... Luckily, the moon will eclipse again in 2010 :)
