Total Lunar Eclipse Over the Willamette
President Bush today decided to blow up a falling spy satellite, but missed by about 60,000 miles, and hit the moon instead! It turned completely red for a while, but suffered no permanent effects. He told reporters that, "Well dangit, the moon is just an easier target to aquire that some puny little space junk!" But seriously, owing to a freak atmospheric phenomenon, the moon in the photo appears to be much larger than it actually is. To the right and up a little from the Hawthorne Bridge, you can just barely make out the Orion constellation amidst all the jpeg compression clutter.
