" ... there will be a total
Lunar eclipse of the moon tonight. Starts about 8:30 pm Central
Daylight time. Fog here in KC, MO so go out and look for me.
From: "Andrew Bateman" <abateman@...>
Just got in from watching it this evening. It was cloudy all day and I
thought I'd miss it, but it cleared up this evening so I took my spotting
scope and repaired to the back yard with a good glass of scotch. It was
quite a show.

(sometime Engineer, but not in 1812 where I be an uneducated Private)
Living on the other side of the same city as Mr. Bateman, Kitchener,
(about an hour west of Toronto) I found it cloudy, but still seeable. I did
not have a
good glass of scotch, rather a good bottle of Raspberry Cordial.
As the night progressed I changed from opera glasses to binoculars as my
site was fading .....
.... finally my wife guided me back into the house ......

International Truck Plant)
PS: Mr. Dorian, You never need ideal atmospheric conditions to observe
a Lunar Eclipse
just the right drink ...... :^)
