Lunar Eclipse

Jake & I got to see the lunar eclipse this last week. So cool!
The blood red moon...
Jake tried to take pictures of it, which is kinda funny, 'cuz we live in a neighborhood with quite a few streetlights... (actually, side note: most neighborhoods this far north have a LOT of street lights. We spend about 4 months in almost 24 hour darkness. We like lots of light... One of the weirdest things to me about living in the lower 48 was the lack of street lights. Yes, it doesn't stay dark as long, but how on earth can you do anything at night??)

His picture didn't turn out so hot, as you can see... But it's fun to see it and know where we were standing when we saw the moon.
On Monday, Jake went to bed at 10 p.m. and set his alarm for 2 a.m. I was still awake, so he and I slipped outside and watched the moon get darker and darker.
