HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY FULL MOON
HAPPY TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE!
A total lunar eclipse will occur this week. AQ will be able to see the entire eclipse from start to finish! Annette will see both the partial and total eclipse. I will see a partial eclipse. I'm so sorry, UK folks, you will need to stream it online, which is still a good show. You can live stream it HERE at the Time and Date YouTube site. Insert your location at the Time and Date website to see when to watch the eclipse in your time zone. For most of us, it will happen on 26 May, Wednesday. You can find info and answers to questions at the NASA site.
I hope everyone has a beautiful summery week and finds some joy!!!Here are the eclipse times in UTC time.
Thank you DIANE for the eclipse info. Alas, Adelaide’s forecast is for showers Tues to Thurs. Perhaps they will be wrong again, or at least for Wed evening.
This morn I set out with camera before 9 am to capture some buildings visible now the autumn leaves have fallen. Some parts of the city centre were deserted and car parks easy to find but none available in 2 streets I wanted. I shall have to bus in and walk to those some other day. I was home in time to “go to church” online. It did feel strange but my church is likely to be crowded and masks are mandatory if more than ¾ full.
LoL has 3 chicks. Hooray!
My Saturday was going pretty well until I realized it was Sunday.
Most of us spend the first six days of each week sowing wild oats; then we go to church on Sunday and pray for a crop failure. (Fred Allen)
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness. (Emo Phillips)
Hello - making no apologies for including our gorgeous granddaughter in my post. She is a real character and has her two brothers on the hop already!
We enjoyed seeing everyone and giving them their remaining presents- at last. Home made soup for lunch, then we tucked into the naughty cakes I took with me- the story of those tomorrow. A big delay driving home, as the M5 was completely closed to traffic after an incident (probably a bad car accident). We had to find our way through the centre of Birmingham instead, although luckily our Youngest once went to University there so we remembered most of it. A memorable day.
Just a thought
