The Steward Crew stayed up until the wee hours to catch the last total lunar eclipse until 2010. Our view from Istanbul started at 4am and ended around 7am. Just before the moon was completely in the earth’s shadow, our 3rd floor view was hijacked by a 100’ tree down the street...by the time I hobbled to adjust it had slipped down the horizon and was hiding behind a building and we missed the highlight of the evening.
Hanging out on our cold balcony made me think back to our early days of marriage and staying up all night to watch meteor showers from Cuyamaca or Laguna meadows. Watching Elle & Stanley in their PJ's crowded around binoculars, cameras and spotting scopes made me feel like a kid again...just not quite as mobile as I used to be.
