Splendor in the Skies…
Fall is here and bringing with the season, cooler temperatures and spectacular happenings in the awesome skies.
Last night, as you know, the Sun, the Earth and the Moon lined up in a row to put on a light show in the sky, and people all around the world looked up to watch the amazing lunar eclipse.
Unless you live under a rock, you know that this eclipse was special. It was called a supermoon because it was one of the eclipses closer to the earth which made it look particularly large in the sky. The last supermoon total lunar eclipse occurred 33 years ago.
Here in our little SW Florida city, our view was blocked by unusual cloud cover… with only quick glimpses, as the moon peeked in and out from under those clouds, as if teasing us….with the promise that there is more to see.
Our children, from other parts of the country, were snapping photos and sending them to us.
Whatever did we do without Smart Phones? 🙂
The Captain and I decided that such a special event last night deserved a special sunrise breakfast this morning. We drove to one of our favorite spots and we were able to see even more splendor in the skies.
Have a great and wonderful beginning to your week, my dear readers.
Life is good. 🙂
