On September 27, 2015 there was a total lunar eclipse, and I went with many other folks to the Strasenburgh Planetarium in Rochester, NY for the event. After a show explaining the science of what was about to happen we climbed up to the roof to watch the real thing through their telescopes. I wasn’t able to get good photos of the eclipse itself with my little phone camera, but I snapped this shot looking back down the stairs. The experience helped me feel connected to my fellow science lovers and to the giant, impartial spin of the cosmos outside our little world. Keep looking up!
