Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
I was tipped off to this event by Sky & Telescope's "This Week's Sky at a Glance" online column. After I left DiBella's around 6pm I caught the full moon rising in the East. Despite some clouds, a slight darkening of the eastern lunar limb was evident and remaind so most of the drive home. Not a great example of a lunar eclipse, but it was better than nothing.
Later, around 11pm, I noticed Jupiter rising in the southeast. Summer is near!
