When Conner was 4 or 5 he received a book that was all about space. He loved it. I would read it to him and he studied the pictures and pages.
One day he wanted to demonstrate some of his knowledge and explained to us, "A solar eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun. A lunar eclipse is when the earth blocks the sun. And an aper eclipse (AY-per) is when the sun blocks the moon."
He had come up with that last one all by himself. But we assured him that if an aper eclipse ever happened, we would all be dead!
Scott and I stayed up late last night to watch the full lunar eclipse -- "blood moon". It was very cool!
While we were out there I thought I would try to capture our night-time balcony view. On one side we can see the light from the Luxor and just a bit of the strip.
And on the other we have the lights of "normal" Vegas. Houses, neighborhoods, Target, the mall . . . all that stuff.
Not the best photos, but it gives you an idea. We keep saying that we need to get chairs or lounge furniture for our balcony so we can sit outside and enjoy evenings like this. Someday we'll quit talking and actually do it!
