It was a Wendesday night the other week...

I was invited to go on a night safari at the Jerusalem bird observatory to watch the birds, the eclipse and for hot chocolate!

I went with Erica, a ministry student from Scotland, who is an avid birder... 3 of us went from the guest house! It was an experience I will not soon forget!

On this safari we heard frogs, Rhona actually saw one, saw an owl in a tree of a grave yard, saw some ants, and the solidified projectile of an owl! The hot chocolate was not that great! But the best part was watching the eclipse.

It was a red eclipse because of the ash in the atmosphere caused by the eruption of the volcano! I was able to take some good pictures of the progression of the lunar eclipse! Although I have not really had a chance to look more clearly at my pictures!

One never knows what experiences they will have in a given day. The people of Palestine and Israel were given a treat that night in watching the lunar eclipse!
