Just a quick note: Last night my wife and I got a clear view of the lunar eclipse. We didn't take a picture, but CalPundit did; it's similar to what we saw. He's right in that, since the moon naturally waxes and wanes, even this rare event is somehow less impressive than it ought to be. Still, it's nice to see celestial mechanics in motion.
Now I just need to witness a meteor, and I'll be satisfied.
