Tonight all eyes have been looking at the sky to catch a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. The day here in NZ was cloudless until about 2pm this afternoon when the low cloud rolled in off the Pacific Ocean. The cloud has stayed all night until about 11pm tonight when the clouds became intermittent allowing New Zealanders to catch a good glimpse of the darkened disc in the sky showing a faint background of orange. The sky had intermittent cloud until around midnight when they started to hide the moon from view once again.
We did however see the eclipse and marvel at what powers the universe has. It makes me realise just how small planet earth is in the scope of things. I just wander what is beyond space?
