I know back in my PL2017 - Week 29, I talked at length about seeing the milky way and the rings of Saturn. It was truly one of the highlights of summer for me. Another much anticipated event was the eclipse that was happening on August 21st. Some parts of North America were going to experience a total eclipse.
I did a blog post on our eclipse experience. You can go back and read it here.
Spoiler alert. It was a little disappointing. For us any way. The change in light was so subtle, that if you hadn't known this was happening, you would have totally missed it. Having said that, watching the moon move across the sun with our special eclipse glasses and home made eclipse viewers, was very cool. It shows you just how strong our sun is. It does tend to leave you in awe.
We'd all like to be somewhere to check out a true full eclipse. Who knows, maybe we'll plan all our vacations and trips around seeing eclipses...
Probably not, but it would be fun to do, if money were no object.
Here is week 34:
- Our little eclipse party.
- Starting our plumbing project. The first cut was definitely the hardest.
- Our orange sunsets because of forest fires throughout Alberta.
- Madelyn still eager to play at the playground. [Please stay little forever]
- Trip to the trampoline park before school heads back.
