It’s no secret to those that know me that I love everything and anything to do with outer space. Mom and Dad, I blame you guys for being total Trekkies and turning me into one too!
I grew up watching Star Trek (Deep Space Nine (I loved the comet), The Next Generation, Voyager, Enterprise), Stargate (The Movie, SG1, Atlantis, Universe) and Star Wars (I-VI). If it had “Star” in the title, I would watch it without a second thought.
Because of all the “Star” programs I watched, I became fascinated with outer space.
I remember the very first time I saw a lunar eclipse. I was in middle school. I watched the moon vanish into nothing and then come back just as fast as it was gone. Shortly after, a meteor shower started. Needless to say this little space geek was super excited. After that, all I needed to see was a solar eclipse (and get superpowers like in Heroes) and my life would be complete!
Well, that didn’t happen.
Instead I’d have to settle for seeing a Super Blood Lunar Eclipse, which did not disappoint!
So, enjoy the photos and the beauty that is the universe!
Did you get to see the eclipse as it was happening?
