Debbie and I head out for the top of Pilot Butte to view the lunar eclipse. The sun had gone down before we headed out, but it was still light.
These were handheld photographs, and it’s amazing they look this good. The point is that they clearly show a phenomenon that was known to the ancients that demonstrated the relative size of the Earth compared to the Moon. It is easy to observe this if you look for it, and it is totally different from the appearance usually seen of the crescent Moon.
