I had been feeling guilty, because here we are five weeks into our new school year and we had not managed even one observing session for Grace’s astronomy study. Either it is raining, or cloudy, or most recently, someone is sick! But we could not pass up the opportunity to see a total lunar eclipse…even those of us who were still sniffling. We even identified a few constellations while waiting for the moon to turn dark. I could not have asked for a better kick-off to our observing sessions.
