Lunar eclipse

As I left work tonight, I had a great view of the lunar eclipse -- and I had my camera with me. I don't have a tripod, so my closeup pic is a little blurry, but it's better than nothing.

Here's the moon over Doernbecher Children's Hospital. If you look closely, you can see the eclipse in progress.

And here's the closeup:

Both of these were taken at about 6:45 PM.

Usually we miss astronomical displays like this, because it's usually cloudy. Tonight, though, it's perfectly clear, and the view is amazing.

Janet, I felt so lucky (here in the Northwest) to actually get to see the eclipse! It seems like it is always raining when stuff like that happens.

BTW, I tagged you with a Meme (my first). You can check it out at my blog
