I have to admit to being a bit of an astronomy buff. I find just about anything to do with the night sky totally fascinating. I quite often will get up and watch meteor showers and the like at all hours. This being said, I absolutely did not drag my 11 year old out of bed at 2am so that she could see part of the total lunar eclipse last night. She was a very good sport. She put on her robe, jacket and boots, walked out on to our deck, looked up for about a minute and said "Cool, I'm tired, I'm going back to bed."
I on the other hand was totally impressed and stayed up to watch a good portion of the eclipse but finally dragged my tired self to bed just after 3am...morning came waaaaay too early!! But it was totally worth it. We will not be able to easily see another total eclipse on the East Coast until 2014!
(On a funny note, Taylor, Teresa and I watched the new Twilight movie Eclipse last night...and made the decision to watch it before I even found out about the lunar eclipse!)
