Richard,

I just talked to the wife. Would you be interested in going to Hodges to see it. My wife and I should be there. I think Hodges is far enough away from the city lights

I can't stay out too late. I gotta get up at 5 am for work. But we can go out there for a while and get some decent pics. I gotta get a tripod for my camera too.

Should be an impressive show, and the last total lunar eclipse until 2010.
