This historic near total lunar eclipse this morning did not disappoint for most. The cold front moved out and took the clouds with it. However there was a band of clouds that did cross the mountains and reached into the western Maryland mountains and southern Pennsylvania.
So if you woke up to clouds, or could not wake up at all, here is a collection of photos shared with me from many photographers across the region. These include some progressions of the carious different phases as the moon passed through Earth’s shadow.

I love this! I was able to get my 10th grader up to view the peak with me. He was happy he saw it first hand. My 12 year old on the other hand rolled over and told me to show him pics later.
Here Brittany’s 11 year old daughter woke up the family to make sure they all watched together.

Gloria Bethke captured a few pics along the way. It is difficult to get that 50% view with such a contrast of brightness.

The front was clearing the coast in time, but a new band of clouds reached farther east and faster from weather Maryland and into southern PA. This may explain why some missed it.

Joe Fox said at the time, “Broken layer of clouds here at 6,000 feet moving at 40mph. Had to shoot in the gaps between clouds.”
