Watching the Moon’s Shadow in an Unexpected Way
I had no idea you could watch an eclipse–watch the moon’s shadow–without special anything.
I did not know that what we see as ‘sunshine’ is actually myriad overlapping circles of light, and during an eclipse, the become slices of light.
My Resident Storm Chaser shows me these kinds of things. He’s so smart.
And watching the ground, various places around the yard, was beautiful.
“Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moon shadow, moonshadow—
Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow—“

Or as my 15-year-old grandprincess discovered, you can watch it through the round holes in a colander.
