Lunar Eclipse Super Blood Moon...

Did you miss it?
The event that takes place about every 33 years? 
The Lunar Eclipse Super Blood Moon.
Well, it's your lucky day!! I have the most beautiful picture taken from Sam's telescope of the moon. It was absolutely amazing and breath taking!!! The four of us had a fabulous time checking out this "once" in a lifetime event!! Stunning!!


Ok. I may have stretched the truth a little...our life is not a daily Christmas card by any means!!

Let me share the real story of our  viewing of the Moon...
I was laying in bed flipping through instagram. Jack was a good hour into his sleeping...Sam and Jason were laying in bed too, watching football. While flipping through instagram, I noticed several pictures of the Lunar Eclipse Super Blood Moon. 
Me: Hey guys, I think we missed the Lunar Eclipse Super Blood Moon.Did you hear about it?
Jason: I'm so over that. Remember last year when we waited to see the super moon? Nothing. 
Me: True.
(continue flipping through instagram)
Me: There sure are a lot of people posting pictures of the moon. Did you know it was an eclipse? Oh wow, it's reddish orange, too.
 (continue flipping through instagram)
Me: Guys, I think we are missing something here. Why didn't I know about this???  Look, Sarah Jessica Parker even posted pictures!!
Sam: If you want to see it, why don't you go outside and look?
Me: I'm too comfortable and don't want to get up.
Jason: And there you go, Sam.
Sam: I'll go out and look.
Sam leaves and shortly comes back,
Sam: I couldn't make it off the porch. I think I heard something in the bushes. 
Me: Yea, those rabbit are vicious.
Jason: I'll go out with you.
Both guys leave.
Sam comes back breathing hard.
Sam: You have to come out and see it. It's pretty cool.
Me: Why are you breathing hard?
Sam: Dad told me to run inside and get you because it's going to go away.
Me: Are you sure you guys aren't going to scare me?
Sam: No! Come on!!!
I very reluctantly get up and head outside to see the super moon. When we get outside Jason yells, "Hurry Up!! You will miss it!" (I think we already had and I don't think the moon moves that fast!)
I look up. 
Me: Wow, that is pretty cool!

And here are my pictures:

Welcome to real life and the our viewing of the Super Lunar Blood Moon. Maybe next time....Oh, and Sam doesn't have a telescope. Actually, we don't even own a telescope.
