So I watched the Lunar Eclipse on September 27th and thought I’d share with you a few of my thoughts. I thought it was pretty awesome. It wasn’t as red as I was expecting but I loved how the darkness slowly moved across the moon. It was also pretty cool how the moon would seem to keep disappearing, but then it would come back. I’m not a big astronomy buff, so maybe that’s why I think it’s so cool how all this occurs. I’m aware there is a reason for it, I just enjoy it for how I see it. I didn’t stay up late enough to watch the whole thing since I had classes the following day but what I saw I was impressed with.
Everyone was outside on the front lawn of my dorm room watching it all happen. Some people were impressed, others weren’t. Some people brought out pillows and blankets, some people were wearing hats, and some people came out for only a few minutes. Whatever people were doing, I loved how everyone came out to watch. It kind of reminded me of how we’re all a community. Plus, people from home or even all over were watching it too.
It’s weird to think that I will be 36 years old the next time I will see another eclipse like this one.
What are your thoughts? Did you watch it too?
I have a link below for those of you interested in the details of the eclipse(if any of the information isn’t correct, sorry. Like I said, I’m not a huge astronomy buff so I wouldn’t know the difference. Just being honest haha).
