Total lunar eclipse
As the sun was setting the Mister and I drove up our street to the top of the ridge to watch the total lunar eclipse. The eclipsed moon was rising just as the sun set, and at first there was very little to see but then the merest sliver of moon became visible as the eclipsed moon slowly climbed into the evening sky.
There were quite a few other people who had also decided that the ridge line where we were was the best place to view the eclipse. It was windy and cold and we hadn't really dressed for that so the Mister and I were both feeling the cold while we were standing around waiting for the moon to do it's thing.
We didn't stay for the end of the eclipse preferring instead to drive home and watch the moon from the relative comfort of the garage with our hands wrapped round a hot cup of tea.
