Stars, our eternal nocturnal friends. And let's not forget the moon. (Although he is much nicer about showing up during dusk and dawn.)
Tyler was excited to show the girls the eclipse. He woke us all up around 3 am. I stumbled to the window, took a glance or two, declared it fabulous and went back to bed. (Have I mentioned that I don't wake up well? Tyler could write a dozen posts on that subject alone, although I don't think it would shine kindly on me.)
The kids were troopers though. They went out and sat on the bench to dutifully watch the shadow slowly cover the moon. I can identify girls in this picture by their particular brand of blanket. (I know Daisy is all the way to the left even though you can't see her.)
I think Tyler got some great pictures, although he wasn't very satisfied with them. Not much moon left.
Now only a sliver.
Oh, but the man of the hour is right here with me. Let's get his informed opinion of the eclipse...
so, it was cloudy.—by tyler
and it was early.
and it was awesome.
There you have it. Straight from the source. Maybe I'll get up for the next one...
