The Moon

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Last night, there was a lunar eclipse.

There have been several over the past few years, but the Pacific Northwest’s heavy cloud cover usually blocks the best views. Yesterday was an exception – the sky was crisp and clear.

I was working late. Around 7:30, with camera in hand, I went outside to capture some pictures. They don’t compare to some of the shots already on flickr, but they do give a nice perspective. The tower you see is on the roof of our Performing Arts Center (PAC) at the Sylvania campus.

If you missed it, your next chance to view a luner eclipse won’t be until 2010.


I just noticed that in the wide angle shot you can also clearly see Saturn and the star Regulus from the constellation Leo. Together the 3 form a broad triangle.
