It’s been a long, long day at the Pt. Mugu airshow today. It was a great show (above all, nobody hurt, nothing bent) and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Over on Twitter there are a bunch of pictures, and I’m sure I’ll have many, many pictures and even some video to share here in the next few days. But for now, just a taste for you:
Driving home I kept looking for the almost fully eclipsed moon rising in the east, but saw nothing. We had a solid bank of clouds to the east. When I got home I kept checking, and finally saw just the tiniest bit of it through a fair-to-middlin’ layer of clouds. So while there will be many more airshow pictures to follow, this will be it for this lunar eclipse:
This was the best view I had of anything going on tonight, about seventeen minutes after totality ended.
As you can see from the wide view, the seeing varied from bad, to worse, to even worse yet.
Now I need to go see what bits and strips of exposed flesh got missed when I slathered on the SPF50 this morning. I know there’s at least one.
