Eclipse Baby, Yeah!

So here we are at the solar eclipse 2017! There has been a lot of hype for our Oregon state as we are the first ones to get the show. I must have subconsciously known to hold off on this sewing project, because really — wolf’s with sunglasses…it’s too perfect!

It was pretty fun even though we stayed low key; snacks on the back patio, kids jumping around.

About 99% lunar eclipse here.

The birds (and kids) got real wild and loud up until it got dark-ish…then silence.

Overall a fun day for science exploring (explaining) and I’m happy to have made this souvenir for a boy who might remember this day in years to come!
