total eclipse of the moon

We were lucky and got a fantastic view of the total lunar eclipse!
To watch, we dragged out some chairs into the garden and sat there for almost an hour under thick warm blankets, watching the moon become darker and darker.It was a great experience to see the moon moving into the central shadow of the earth and then out again.
There is another one in December this year, but apparently this one was the longest and deepest in almost a decade.

Did you get to see the lunar eclipse?
