Lunar Eclipse tonight (tomorrow morning)

I hope I remember to make this announcement at BASFA tonight if nobody beats me to it:

Starting at about 1:15 am with totality around 2:45, there will be a total eclipse of the moon. Chabot Space & Science Center will be open at about 10 pm and will stay up till it's over around 4 am. The San Jose Astronomical Assn will have an eclipse party at Houge Park. For those of you who don't want to get dressed and out of bed, the Discovery Channel is planning a live video feed.

I'm at the counter in the post office, waiting for the clerk to get a piece of registered mail out of the back for me, while the woman next to me is being asked the standard questions for the package she is mailing:

"Anything liquid?"

"Anything fragile?"

"Anything perishable?"
"Only in the hands of children."
