Date Night

Dave and I had a date with the moon this evening between 10-11 p.m. ET. What a cool view we had from our front yard of the lunar eclipse! It was FREEZING outside, but Dave set up our tripod and got this cool photo using the timed exposure setting on our little digital camera. If you can enlarge this photo, do it...it really is cool! You can see Saturn and Regulus in the photo as well. Where we live here in Lebanon there is very little extraneous light at night (like you would have in a city or more suburban area) so the view we have of God's stellar creations is quite remarkable. Tonight was just another fantastic exhibit of that!



"When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place..." (Psalm 8:3)

Terri,
The moon was awesome last night. I was so afraid that the clouds might not clear in time...but they did.

We are in Lancaster County and have friends in Lebanon. Not so far....

Welcome to Hospitality Lane and the Giveway. I am very happy to "meet" you.
