Full Lunar Eclipse

Last night:

At first, there was an enormous white ball low in the sky. It got smaller as it rose but was still full, illuminating almost like daytime. Slowly it became a sliver and everything darkened. I thought that was it. By the next hour there was a spectacular orange ball in the sky. Things on the ground glowed red. What a treat! (I tend not to sleep much.)
