Did any of you see the eclipse this morning? Or as our ancestors would have said: "Did you see that giant dragon eat the moon and then spit it back up this morning?" Anyway, I tried to take some photos. What kind of sucks is that only the very first photo I took of the red moon was in focus. Not coincidentally that was the only one where I could get the autofocus to work. Blah. It was so dark I was just guessing on the manual focus after that. And setting focus to infinity does not work on the moon! If I hadn't been trying to get ready for work at the same time I would have spent more time fiddling with it.

oh cool! I wanted to see it but when I woke up I was so cold, I couldn't get out of bed.

It's so weird with the red moon.

Hi there.

I noticed in your profile that you are a fan of “The Big Lebowski.” It’s my all time favorite movie, so I thought I could contact you as a kindred sprit on some Dude-like level.

In fact, I’ve contacted several other Lebowski fans, completely at random, with this very same message…

I’m writing to see if you’d join me in participating in an internet “Meme,” which is kind of like a game of tag, and kind of like chain letter. It’s all done via blog, though, and it’s all a bit of harmless fun.

If you are even remotely curious, do please read my entry about it, here at my blog “Radio Zero.” If not, thanks for your time! Either way, have fun.

The Dude Abides,

Radio Zero

I can't believe I missed it!! Well, I can - I'm not into getting up.. but hell - I could have just stayed up all night.

The pics are cool.. I love the red sun. so focusing to infinity and BEYOND(!) did not work? I have been able to just get my autofocus to focus on the moon before?

wow. the color on the first one is just amazing. good job on remembering the eclipse! Since I purposefully ignore the news, I had no idea. If only I'd not thrown out poor richard's almanac.

I didn't know there was going to be an eclipse until it was already over. :-/

Love that first pic especially!
