Ooh, it’s starting!  How exciting!

The Earth’s Shadow….

I heard on the news it was supposed to be a total lunar eclipse…

But evidently Fukushima City did not get the memo, because it was not quite total.

The view from the ground.  Middle of Fukushima City.  My son had festival drum practice, so we had “tsukimi” (moon viewing) as a group.

Brilliant!

I offered my camera to my son, but he said, “I want to enjoy it without technology.”  My bad.

There you are again!

I see the moon and the moon sees me.

God bless the moon and God bless me.

(If you missed it, there will be another one next April.)
