Night School

Last night we had a class at 9:00.  The kids were so excited to watch the total lunar eclipse.  What an awesome sight to watch it from our front porch.  The night was clear and perfect for viewing.  I called my oldest son and reminded him of the event.  We reminisced about the time when he was about 8 or 9  I got him up in the middle of the night to sit on our back porch to watch one.  We’ve missed the lunar eclipses of the past few years due to weather conditions, proximity, or just plain forgetting.  I’m glad that my kids had the opportunity to enjoy such a magnificent display of God’s creation.


I tried to get some pictures but my little HP doesn’t take very good night time pictures. Here is one of the best shots I got.

If you missed it last night you’ll have to wait until December 2010 for the next one visible in the U.S.

Here are some websites you may want to checkout with more information about lunar eclipses.

    We ran outside last night to get a glimpse, only to realize that it was too cloudy to view. We couldn't see anything. Oh well….guess it's 2010 for us.

    The eclipse was beautiful, wasn't it?

    To get the picture to align to the right of the text, add

    align="right"

    before you close the link to the image. I put the picture link before the text. You can use

    align="left"

    if you want the picture to be on the left of the text. Here's an example:

    Here is the HTML for my first paragraph/picture if it helps:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/57344413@N00/2282405262/&quot; title="my button container"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2286/2282405262_567dbc267f_t.jpg&quot; alt="my button container" width="100" height="56" border="1" align="right" /></a>I

    don't have any special stories of family button containers growing up – buttons

    were pretty practical. However, I love buttons (guess I'm not the only one).

    When my children were younger (I don't think I had all four yet), I saw an inexpensive

    bag of miscellaneous buttons (and some buckles and stuff) at a fabric store

    and I just had to buy it! My boys have never been much into crafts, so the buttons

    went into a container in my craft area, to be forgotten….

    Sorry this is so long!

    P.S. The paragraph HTML actually made a paragraph instead of showing in plain text. 🙂 The HTML from my page that I pasted above was enclosed in the HTML for paragraph. Let me know if you have any more questions, although I'm not an expert. 🙂
