The Eclipse is Starting!

Who's going to be watching it tonite?

Since I've got better things to do with my time, I won't be sitting by my back door watching the eclipse happen over the next three hours. Instead, I'm going to set my timer and then will round up the older kids to take a peek every 15 minutes or so, until we go to bed.

Astronomy is on my list of things we're going to study this year. We have such beautiful, clear skies out here, and we can see so many stars, it would really be nice to know more about what we're seeing on a regular basis. I figured it would be most fun to work through our Classical Astronomy book once the weather is warmer and we can enjoy hanging around outside at night.
