Lunar Eclipse

Luner eclipse  2/20/08

Looking at the eclipse through the clouds was no fun so I decided to go to bed a little early. Before going to sleep, I adjusted the blinds so I can see the moon with my head on the pillow. A half hour later, my wife comes to bed and wakes me up. I look through the blinds at the now, total eclipse. I now had to get out of bed to watch for a little while. Being it was about 14 degrees outside; I decided to watch through the window. With no obstructions, I grabbed my camera.
