Clouds in the sky

which totally figures, doesn’t it? After all, how many opportunities do most of us have to observe a full lunar eclipse? Especially in the Southern Hemisphere at a reasonable time of day (like 18xx-23x) rather than 0 dark whatever?

So the moon came up. As did the clouds. Unlike the last time I watched an eclipse I don’t have a camera, tripod nor do I have a lot of patience…

So – the moon came up =

full and round in the sky

and reflecting over the water

and then …. dark and clouds

and after that? Nothing but clouds here…


and, since I looked it up – the last eclipse I observed was in Jan 2018 with the link to the post and the photos here...

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
