Random Fact for the Day – Libration

895136_moon.jpgNo, that’s not “liberation”. It’s “libration”.

Apparently, the moon wobbles in its orbit. Check out the cool animation.

Speaking of the moon, did anyone get a clear sky for the lunar eclipse two nights ago?

Little did I know that my friend Michelle and I had scheduled our monthly homeschool information night on the same day as the eclipse. Needless to say, it was a small meeting.

We joked around with the Barnes and Noble events coordinator that the meeting was small because of the eclipse. He laughed. But I think he thought we were joking.

    Yes, we caught it, of course. Would you believe I mentioned that it was going to occur to my knitting group, and no one cared?

    Well, knitting *is*enthralling. 🙂

    Glad you were able to get a good view. It’s a really amazing thing to see.
