A Change of Scenery!

A Change of Scenery!

A change of scenery can be a mini vacation!  Mr. Blogger and I ventured to Leavenworth over the weekend for a short couple of days getaway.  We enjoyed the scenery (it is hard to beat the alpine views this time of year) and spent time wandering the back roads and checking out the local haunts.  No schedules and no big plans made for a great short getaway.  The crisp clear air was perfect for checking out the “blood moon” that appeared Monday night but at the very last minute the clouds came in and covered up the gorgeous display of the eclipse.  Here is what we missed!  

Blood Moon
Total Lunar Eclipse

Did you know:

•The Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite

•Because the Moon keeps the same face turned pointed towards the Earth it is in synchronous rotation

•The Moon rotates on its own axis about once for every 27.3 days as it takes to rotate the Earth.

•There is no “Dark Side of the Moon” – the Moon rotates around the Earth and so all sides of the Moon are hit by the Sun at some point. However there is a “Far Side of the Moon” which is the side facing away from Earth.

•A full moon is about 5 times brighter than a half-moon.

If you missed the Blood Moon there is a good video of it on CNN at http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/15/tech/innovation/blood-moon/index.html
