Lunar Eclipse

On Saturday, March 3, there was a lunar eclipse that was visible from my area, however, I was on a flight to Florida at the time as discussed in my previous post.  I had assumed that I would not be able to see it due to being stuck in airports all evening and clouds along the eastern coast of the US, but, as it happens, the eclipse was fully visible from my seat on the plane being above the clouds.  This would not have been possible had my flight been on time, but a 2 hour delay for mechanical problems was perfect to give me a full view of the second half of the eclipse.  Like most airplanes, the windows do not allow for a clear view and the cheap digital camera I have for travel made imaging the eclipse useless.  At the least, I can say I saw the lunar eclipse while cruising at 30,000 feet.
