If you missed it, the first pictures from last night's full lunar eclipse are already posted on the Web. One of them is a beautiful, blood-red image from Joe Webster, shot from Annapolis.
After a sunny day and a very promising, clear night at the start of the eclipse, high, thin clouds moved over the moon from where I stood north of Baltimore. Once the eclipse was total, the dimmed moon alternately vanished and reappeared through gaps in the clouds. We gave up around 10:45 p.m. But when I stuck my head out the door at 11:45, the moon hung nearly overhead - big, bright and rosey.
A few neighbors and dog walkers stopped by for a look through the telescope. Some seemed pretty impressed. A few were baffled. Science teachers have their work cut out for them.
