There was a blood moon tonight. We watched the eclipse come in as we drove home. First it looked like a dirty black cloud obscuring the bottom corner of the moon. By the time we pulled into the driveway it was a big smudge a quarter of the way across the moon face.
We watched it on-and-off over the next hour, until there was a tiny sliver of light and the beginnings of a nice red moon.
Then the cloud cover moved in and that was the end of our moon watching.
Still, eclipses have always meant good things in our household.
Sure enough, when we turned on the computer what did we see in our twitter feed?
Our first ‘official’ mention of Linesman in our editor’s tweet.
It’s starting to feel real. This story is going to be published.
