Totally Clipped

I've seen a number of solar eclipses. The most recent one, a partial, occurred five minutes after a certain infamous industrial purchasing agent, who, in the manner of one of Louis L'Amour's villians, shared his name with a Chicago neighborhood, called me to acknowledge that he had found paper work documenting that I was right and he was wrong.

Lunar eclipses are much rarer for me. The only one I've seen, again partial, was decades ago while I was at summercamp. We will be attending a church guyboat supper this evening, but I will attempt to drag everyone outside at moonrise.

It was scheduled for 3:16 PST as far as I could tell I wasn't going to be awake. I've seen a couple lunar eclipses and a partial solar when we lived overseas on the Sub-Continent. It's really neat to see stuff like that when you're a kid, it sticks with you.
