Eclipse of the Moon from Astoria, Oregon

In the beginning . . . tree branches in the night. When the room is dark and I haven't cropped the picture you can see more branches and some heavy equipment in corrosion-proof green. It's nice and atmospheric. I was over by Pier 39 near the gym in the dead end of the street. The last lunar eclipse seen from here was at 3 or 4 in the morning. This one behaved better and occurred in the evening while I was still awake (from about 5:45 until fully in shadow around 7:00 pm or so).
