Anyone who knows me, knows how miserable I am at the thought of catching a 6 am flight out of LAX tomorrow morning. I am really and truly not a morning person, and the thought of leaving the house at 4:30 in the morning is only marginally more appealing than, say, getting punched in the face. Roosters are still rubbing the grit from their eyes at that hour. It’s not civilized. So when I read that there is a total lunar eclipse taking place between from 2 am until 5:30 in the morning, it was like the universe was rewarding me for pain and suffering. The complete eclipse is only visible to United Statians west of the Rockies (as well as Aussies, Kiwis, and some islanders), so my fellow Angelos who also have to wake up at the ass crack of dawn tomorrow, fortune is favoring us. Enjoy.
