Full Lunar Eclipse February 20 2008

Ted and I had a front row seat for the lunar eclipse yesterday. We went to the local Barnes and Noble for coffee, and grabbed two seats in the window facing east so we could watch the moon as we sipped our lattes. An altogether lovely date night.

Very few people seemed to be aware of what was happening. There was a group of students huddled near our table, peering out the window, and the barristas came over for a quick look before returning to their espresso machine, but the other forty or so people in the store seemed completely oblivious to what was happening. It made me a bit sad.

Here's a short video from YouTube that someone made of the eclipse:
