Yes, some saw lunar eclipse despite clouds
Some in the Washington region saw and photographed the lunar eclipse Friday night despite the overcast skies.
Photos of the gray moon above the Washington Monument were posted on Twitter. The grayness was characteristic of the type of eclipse, in which the moon did not enter the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow.
Instead, it was in the area called the penumbra an area of only partial shadow.
By 2 a.m. Saturday, the eclipse was long over, but skies had cleared sufficiently for night-owl skygazers to see high above them the February full moon. With only the flimsiest veil of clouds, it shone at close to peak brightness.
