Lunar Letdown

I got up bright and early this morning, excited to catch the lunar eclipse. Well, I could tell there was an eclipse going on but the clouds prevented me from seeing it. There was no silvery brightness to the sky, like there was when I went to bed at 1:00 a.m. but I couldn’t see anything on the western horizon due to heavy clouds. Alas, it was not to be. Guam was only going to catch the very beginning of the eclipse anyway, people in South Asia, the Middle East and Africa will have a much better view of the event.
