Carrie and I had gone to Venango, Nebraska (just east of Holyoke, Colorado) to spend time with Carrie’s mom and Larry, on Larry’s farm.
While we were there, we heard that there was going to be an eclipse. It was going to be early in the morning, but one of the nice things about this part of Colorado/Nebraska is that it is exceptionally flat, which means that you can see the sun and moon all the way to the horizon.
This makes for some incredible sunrises and sunsets, and also meant that we could see the eclipse of the moon, unimpeded.
Here are the pictures I took of the eclipse as the sun was coming up.
It got too bright (as the sun was coming up) to see the shadow of the earth on the moon.
It was also a very crisp morning (maybe 10 degrees Fahrenheit or -11 Celsius). I was very glad to have my heavy coat on to be outside taking these pictures. unlike cats, which come with their own built-in coats.
