Watching the Lunar Eclipse from the Center of the Public Astronomy Universe

I love the Griffith Park Observatory, better-than-ever after a recent renovation. It was a blast to enjoy a "community eclipse" on Wednesday night. Telescope nerds, teenagers, school kids, moms with daughters, and every other kind of Angeleno was there, speaking the usual polyglot of languages. And despite the threat of clouds, the moon came through with a spectacular show. If you missed it, try again in 2010!
