Bang, zoom, straight to the moon

Those lucky enough to stay up this morning (I tried but passed out) had the chance to see a lunar eclipse, where the Earth’s shadow blocked the sun’s light, creating a shadow over the moon and changing its color.

Luckier were those in the West Coast, where the photo at right was taken by the Associated Press. For us in the East, as things were getting interesting, dawn began to spoil the view (or so I’ve read, since I was, alas, sleeping).

P.S., Rule of thumb: Spare me the explanations when I make pop references, like in the headline of this post. We all know what Hoonemooner Jackie Gleason meant – and what I mean.

Now google “rule of thumb.” Discuss.
