Lunar Eclipse

I viewed the Lunar Eclipse last night primarily alone. Scott and Felicia saw some of the opening stages, but soon retired to bed, leaving the darkening of the moon solely to me.
Conditions were just about perfect here. Few clouds in the sky helped, and less city lights than I am used to dealing with helped the viewing enormously. The relatively low angle of the Moon was a blessing, the optical illusion that allows the moon to seem larger when it is lower in the sky helped in seeing the details.
If only I had my binocs here.

One thought on “Lunar Eclipse”

  1. It was cloudy in Mass. Sad.
    And we were beaten by road fatigue after 15 straight hours of car travel.
