Paying It Forward So You Don't Have to Set THe Alarm Clock for 1:33 AM

There is going to be a lunar eclipse starting in about four hours. I am going to set my alarm clock for 1:30AM so I can witness this event. Even though it says the best time is 3:17AM..maybe I will set it again. Do not think I will be up for the full time it takes for the entire eclipse.

'The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.'

This past month November there was this Moon Over Baltimore

Tonight, Monday, this is what the moon looks like  at 9:45PM from my front porch in Baltimore.

This should be a really cool (about 30 degrees cool) doing this through the wee hours of the morning.

It is freezing 26 degrees with a wind chill of 15! My hands are frozen and cramped. My glasses are fogged up and I am finished for the night. This was so exciting but very quiet and very cold.

Good Morning Margaret....

Wow you are a trooper!!!  Great pictures!  I missed it...lol.  I set my clock at 11:45 for 1:33... I should have just stayed up!! LOL 

I don't think I would have seen it from my window...and that's probably as far as I would have traveled in that frigid weather anyway lol.  I was so easily excited when I read your blog, but once I hit that bed it was over LOL.

Happy Holidays!

Haven't checked the pics yet but it was a great clear morning to watch this.  We caught it on the wane with a beautiful full moon in the aftermath.  Too cool!

Wow, Margaret. I had to come back to see what you did. Very cool. I admire your perseverance and willingness to stand around in the cold to snap these. We couldn't see a thing because of the storms.

Hi Margaret, How wonderful. It is fun talking to you on the phone while I write this. You did an amazing job her in capturing this eclipse. As I mentioned I think you are destined to bring creative photography more prominently into your life and that will exciting for you and the way you naturally love to share life's bounties. I hope this "Recommend" button still works so many others can see these.

I love your idea that we discussed and you make so proud to be associated  with you. Your gracious and giving heart guarantees you a place in his safe keeping.

You are an amazing human being Margaret Rome !

Jeff, It was pretty exciting to stay up in the cold and the wind. I really got lost in time.

William, Thanks for taking time from your busy schedule. Really enjoy our conversations. Thanks for the review of the book and for all your kind words.
