Last night we went to bed as usual...until God woke me up at 2:45, the exact time that the full eclipse was to begin. And not only that, He graciously positioned the moon so that I could see it out of the skylight in the master bathroom. I was able to see the beautiful eclipse as it became full, and enjoy it from the comfort of my warm home. What a surprising gift. :)
Here's a picture of the moon over the Washington Monument, copied from the Washington Post. Beautiful, isn't it?
