Well as the sun was setting on the West Coast and the dynasty of the Los Angelas Lakers, the sun was making another disappearance here in the Midwest (or, actually, on the Moon). Starting sometime after 10pm EST on May 15, 2003 the southern pole of the moon began to darken as the Earth's shadow started a lunar eclipse over the moon.
I feared I wouldn't get any photos because of the cloud cover, but as the shadow on the moon increased the clouds went away. Over the next few hours I shot dozens of photos of the moon with my camera mounted on the tripod, programmed to snap a shot off every minute or so.
