Oh My Blue Moon and Stars and Lunar Eclipse


The  'Once In A Lifetime' event of Winter Solstice and the Lunar Eclipse coinciding for the first time since 1638 on December 21, 2010
had this Texas Gal looking at the Night Sky and the Acorn China Cabinet. 

I decided to let the Professional Photographers Shoot the NightSky Moon.
Lunar Eclipse 2010: See What You Slept Through



Moon and Stars Glassware has been in production since the late 1800's.  Started by Adams & Company in 1874...continued by LG Wright Company from 1930-1999 and LE Smith Company from the 1940's-2004...and currently produced by the Weisher Company since the 1980's.  You can read about the History of Moon and Stars at The Official Moon and Stars Glass Collectors Club Website.


Although, I've collected Moon and Stars in Amber, Green, Clear and Red this color Blue is my favorite. 
Besides the pieces featured here, I have the Complete Canister Set. 


The next Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse is predicted for December 21, 2094!!!!
I thought I'd better get a few shots of my own to remember:
Who What & Where I was on December 21, 2010....
...and for posterity!

  1. The moon was perfectly positioned in its passage, so that my daughter and I lay down on the floor and watched the eclipse through the skylights - lovely!

  4. Your blue moon and stars glassware is beautiful!! We had clouds, so no lunar eclipse was visible here. But two of my sisters (they live clear across the country from me) saw it.

  6. Those are gorgeous. The dishes I mean. I showed hubby a picture and said that's what I want to look for. Thanks for the link to the club site. Not sure if it might be too collectible but maybe I'll have a lucky find. Take care sweetie.

  10. Oh, I love the blue. I have few pieces of the green that my MIL gave me a year or so ago. I especially like the cake plate.

    Beautiful photos of the moon. We didn't see the eclipse. It was a cloudy night here.
