Super Moon and Oogling the Eclipse

Super Moon just peaking over the rise

What did you do for super moon? I stayed up late (for me) and we watched it rise over our mountain. It made everything really, really bright. It would have been the perfect night for Night Crochet.  I used full zoom for these photos.

Then we also had another fine astronomical event this month – the eclipse. Albuquerque was right in the middle of it and we were on the edge. We tried driving west, to find a nice flat horizon in time, but failed. We were equipped with some classy steampunk goggles and a nice blue glass plate. What do you use to sneak a peak at an eclipse in a pinch?

“The goggles! They do nothing!”

No, Mom – we don’t see little burned out spots everywhere now.
