Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse

Last night Bryan and I got to check out the full moon and lunar eclipse. Thankfully the sky stayed clear until after the moon hit complete eclipse phase. Here are a few shots I took:

I had some tripod issues and forgot to refocus before I tried taking some blood moon shots. Unfortunately, this is the best I have.

My nephews did a little science experiment this week. You know how cut flowers continue to “drink” when placed in water? If you have white flowers and put food coloring in the water, you end up with colored flowers! The experiment demonstrates transpiration, cohesion, capillary action, and all that jazz. They used Queen Anne’s Lace and blue and red had the best results. Take a look!
