Will we see the lunar eclipse

2008-02-20 15:03:52.000 – Stacey Kawecki,  Observer


There will be a lunar eclipse tonight. The question is, will we see it from the summit, or will we have to experience it second hand either by accounts from valley dwellers or pictures on the internet? As it so often happens, while driving to the base of the Auto Road this morning, among mostly blue skies, there was a single deck of clouds, covering the top of Mount Washington. The clouds have been toying with our emotions since arriving, occasionally showing us a playful glimpse of blue sky. All we can do is wait, and see what kind of skies Mother Nature will provide for us: A clear view of the last lunar eclipse until 2010, or a veil of shadowy fog? We will let you know how we fare tomorrow!
