I won’t see the eclipse due to the time but I will get a great moon set over the lake when I wake up.

Exactly. I was wondering if they could delay it by a few hours. Maybe someone could ask Obama?

That was the utility company which goes to my point.
An eclipse has got to cost a lot more than my light bill!

6 AM would be good. Enough time to grab a cup of coffee and get outside.

It will be middle of the day for me, but I have seen my share of lunar eclipses. As for solar, I flew to Perry, FL in 1970 to see one of those. It was somewhat of a bumber with a total overcast.

Yeah, look your zip code, you are in the visible area, assign a ‘viewing fee’, via IRS.

Stork of the keyboard, how easy.
