Super Blue Blood Moon

This morning was the Super Blue Blood Moon! I set the alarm for 6am, bundled up as it was 28 degrees and falling outside, and almost slipped on ice which was now covered up under the fresh snow. I saw snowplows going by and the neighbor leaving for work. It was so calm and crisp for this triple moon: Blood Moon, Super Moon, & Eclipse. It was pretty amazing watching the moon go into eclipse even if there were too many trees in my backyard. I was outside for almost an hour and it was so cold that a few times my eyes started to tear up. My last photo before I want inside to a warm house to feed the cats (and go back to sleep), found the sun rising and my clothing choices becoming apparent.

The Millennium Falcon

I have been meaning to try out the 3D printers at work and final got the chance today. In a galaxy of items to make, what did I pick? The ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs! Yes, the Millennium Falcon. The material is made from corn, there are 651 layers, and the total print time was 7 hours 10 minutes.
