And everything under the sun is in tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon - Pink Floyd

Sunday we traveled out to Fossil Creek Reservoir Open Space to hang out with the Fort Collins Natural Areas & Astronomical Society volunteers. There were cars lined up half way to the entrance but there was really very little if any wait for the displays.  We had a demonstration of how an eclipse works:

Looked through telescopes (equipped with filters, of course):

Waited for the sun to come out from behind the clouds:

Took a walk around the lake where Stella saw some lake flies mating:

 and Sandis took a picture of a cloud of them:
We saw some Grebes:

and a beautiful sunset:

All within about 2 hours.  A lovely end to the weekend.
