Nearing totality at 2:22 a.m.
I heard that it wasn’t clear in Cape for the historic total eclipse of the full moon Dec. 21, 2010. Here’s what it looked like in West Palm Beach. It was chilly, in the low 50s, but the skies were clear.
The photos were taken with a Canon FS100 video camera in still mode. I can zoom to a higher magnification with it than my Nikon D40.
Total eclipse 3:22 a.m.
Time to go to bed 3:55 a.m.
I could have gotten more sleep if I had followed the advice I gave a friend who didn’t think he’d be able to see the eclipse:
- Go out in the back yard and stare at the full moon.
- Close your eyes.
- Open your eyes.
- Go to bed
- Complain about how hard it is to get up
