A thread about not appreciating things (or, conversely I suppose, a thread about appreciating things).
Anyone see this last night? I was doing a fair bit of pottering outside late on last night and noticed the moon was back. It’s been quite low recently and not visible where I am.
I also noticed it was huge, bright red and the top half was missing but didn’t think anything of that, my brain forcing me to normalise something I knew wasn’t ordinary. More pottering and I then spotted the ISS (I assumed) overhead, and was joined by a bat and a nearby owl who also seemed to appreciate things. Once inside to google the ISS passes this month I realised I’d been watching a lunar eclipse with realising it.
I actually bought myself a basic telescope earlier this year to look at this sort of stuff but since then the weather has been crap and I’ve never used it. Last night would have been ideal. That was annoying.
I then stayed up till two reading - Jnr G is on medication every hours so stayed up for the 2am batch. I woke up for 6am batch and have been staring at the ceiling since then. This is the fourth night of this. I’m so tired everything has trails, and now I’ve got to go to fecking work.
Not sure what the point of all this is really. Ho hum.
