Drunk on Moonlight (and then I fell asleep SHISH!) —- Monday, January 21, 2019

I kept checking the moon, every hour on the hour, then every thirty minutes

Gradually the clear light of the moon paled and became shadowed

I stayed watching

And missed the whole thing…I fell asleep sitting in one spot looking out the window, exhausted

How disappointing.ย  I woke only to see the moon sail clear and shining and beautiful in the dark sky!


Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. You must have been really tired! Your moon photos are amazing ~ I sat all bundled up on the back deck, mesmerized by the moon and stars ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I so feel for you. Trying so hard and not making it through the eclipse. I couldn’t even see the moon though I tried. It was so cloudy we couldn’t even get the light of it. More rain on the way the next two days. ;( Thanks for the photos you did get though.


  3. That’s it?!?! Gee! I saw it quite clearly even though I did not expect to. It was supposed to be cloudy, but the clouds cleared for the event. It was probably an hour later in your time zone.
