Before the moon rose clouds had begun to move in from the coast. I was positive tonight was 'a wash'. But a few breaks in the clouds gave me enough time to see the eclipse begin, all the way to totality. I chose this view - 30 minutes prior to total eclipse - because it was the only photo also showing 'heavenly objects'. It was cold, but well worth the wait.
