Natural Events

Another summery (sort of) day today, though it was windier and a little chillier. It’s supposed to start storming again tonight, though, so we’ll see how long the rain lasts.

Last night there was an amazing lunar eclipse, the last that will be visible in Michigan till March 2007 (seems a long time away, though 2 years and 4 months isn’t really a long time at all in the scheme of things), according to the news. The moon started vanishing at a little after 9.00 and by 11.00 it was hidden behind the earth’s shadow, a tint of deep maroon. Incredible.
