lunar eclipse

Last night was a lunar eclipse, which I did not know but saw anyhow (hooray for insomnia!). I wondered why the moon was suddenly orange and then that sliver of intense brightness just kept growing, although at the time I just chalked it up to the cloud cover. I am very thankful I got to see it, although it would have been even COOLER if the baby had decided to come then. Can you imagine? Not just 'you were born on a full moon' but 'you were born on a lunar eclipse!'. Maybe this kiddo just doesn't want a big fuss. :) I found this image, which is very close to what I saw, online. I wish I had gone and grabbed my camera, but oh well.
