eclips_2_08_kevin.jpgYou probably saw the lunar eclipse, right? Unlike K and I, who will have to wait until 2010 or 2015 to try again.

When we went out to view the moon on February 21, binoculars in hand, we saw only a cloudy sky, shrugged out shoulders, and gave up. We didn’t think to look again for a few hours, by which time the clouds had cleared. Who knows how long moon was in view — probably for most of the eclipse. As it is, we only saw the very end of it, which made the moon look like a giant cookie with a bite out of it. How’s that for poetry?

When I was a kid, there was some cheesey ’50s movie about going to the moon they showed all the time on TV, but now I can’t find any information about what that film might of been. Coulda been this one. I’m sure it was pretty unwatchable, whatever it was.
