Lunar Eclipse

   Skies were clear, temperature was 30o, and I was all by myself in the parking lot behind the Science/Technology building on the Longview College campus. Actually I wasn’t completely alone as there were deer roaming around in the field across the road but they were looking down for food while I was looking up.
   This eclipse was not timed well for my location at 94oW longitude as the time for totality was very close to the time for sunrise. So as the eclipse progressed the sky gradually brightened. The last view of the Moon I had was at 5:57 am CST.
