I missed seeing the lunar eclipse. In spite of it being Saturday, I woke up around 6 as usual. I peeked outside and saw a few stars, so I threw on some clothes and went out. But didn't see anything. I've seen eclipses before, so I knew that you should still be able to see the outline of the moon. My next door neighbor was standing in his driveway, and I asked him if he had seen anything. He said he'd been up watching, and saw when the eclipse started around 5 am. But now the marine layer was starting to come in from the west and the cloud cover had become thick enough to completely obscure the sight. Hey, at least I tried. Now I think it's time for a nap.
