Ark Building and Moon Watching

Wahoo!  The Ark is built!  And now Noah is on the seen as are a couple of sheep.  I need to stitch the swans and then work on all the back-stitching.  The end is in sight!

"Did you take a look at the moon last night?"

"All you had to do was look up!"

On the west coast the moon rose showcasing the full eclipse.
This is the umbra - "innermost and darkest part of a shadow, where the light source is completely blocked by the occluding body (the earth). An observer in the umbra experiences a total eclipse." (Wikipedia)  

"Seriously people, turn off your Smart Phone, go outside, and look!" 

We did get a nice view as the penumbra slowly slid across the surface of the moon.

"The penumbra is the region where some or all of the light source is obscured." Wikipedia

Just the littlest bit left...

And bam!  Back to a full moon once again.

"Told ya!  It was pretty cool!"

It was pretty cool! All five of us watched it from our back yard.

Great pics of the eclipse! We saw the moon too, when it wasn't quite fully covered. So neat to see the sliver of light still there! The color was amazing too! (Smart deer!)

I love this post with the deer Beth. We had cloud cover all evening and I couldn't see the moon. So sad.

Beth, what great pictures of the moon! It was really cloudy here so we could barely see the shape of a moon but we have been enjoying everyone's pictures. Love your ark and your deer's commentary!

How awesome! I didn't get to see it in New Zealand--maybe next time. Your little deer shots are adorable, too.
