I used my Canon SX50, the camera with the crazy zoom lens, to score the photos. One of them even ended up on KGUN 9 TV this morning. That's a pretty awesome thing for a barely amateur photographer like me. It may have helped that the show the photo was on happens to be the same show that I manage, but we'll pretend that's not part of the equation.
It was a clear night and a pretty spectacular view.

as seen from the balcony of the Ken Carr World Headquarters
at 11:20 p.m.
|11:40 p.m. and the shadow continues to creep across the moon.|
|12:15 a.m. and the shadow is now 90 percent across.|
You can see the reddish color that the shadow causes.

That little bright thing down to the lower right is Mars.
This is the photo that was shown today on KGUN 9.
