It was worth seeing.
The family had gotten up with me, the kids had taken a look and pretty quickly headed back to bed. It was a bit hard to see it well with the street lights. I downed some espresso, laced up my shoes and drive up to Altadena. I was on the trail by 5:45. The view from the shoulder of Mt Wilson was much better that from my home in Pasadena but I couldn't get my aging iPhone 4s camera to focus given the lack of light. By 6:20 the moon was out of totality and I was able to get a semi-decent image:
|Lunar eclipse, 6:20 am , past totality|
|Moon coming out of totality, 6:40am|
