Did you watch the solstice lunar eclipse??

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

I didn't. Even though the last one was 500 or so years ago, and there won't be another for a similar amount of years - and even though DH got up, and I awoke, and I had trouble going back to sleep - and even though the cat came in an hour later and re-woke me and wouldn't let me go back to sleep - I just couldn't manage to get up at 3:45 AM, throw on some clothes, get in his Jeep, and go watch the eclipse.

I'm sorry I missed it.

But I'm just not a middle-of-the-night person, unless I stay up. If I fall asleep, I need to sleep until some time in the later AM. Like, oh, 5 AM. 3:45 is still night as far as I'm concerned. And bed was warm and comfy, as opposed to jouncing around in the Jeep looking for the western sky, with the bimini top and no windows letting in too much night air. I just couldn't face that.

Ah well, no regrets, it isn't the end of my world.

So - did you watch? No? Why or why not?

    Yeah, I kind of wish I'd gotten up to watch. DH said it was very pretty, and exciting to know it was a once in a lifetime thing.

    I didn't watch it either. I get up everyday at around 5 and go to bed at midnight - I wouldn't be able to get up to watch it.

    I would have loved to watch it. My father used to drag me out of bed at 3:00 in the morning to watch a meteor shower or to point out a certain planet. He's brilliant that way and I love watching the night sky. We even saw the Aurora Borealis from our backyard once. It was very cool. I wish I would have known about this.
