Lunar eclipse strip tease in Hawaii

Last night in Hawaii we witnessed the first total lunar eclipse in 4 years and I will look forward to the next in 2010. It really did turn “blood red” and was breathtaking. Clouds rolled in as the “totality” approached at midnight and alternately concealed and revealed the spectral moon. The periods of waiting for the next glimpse only served to make it more spectacular.
