Selenelion

No, that wasn't a typo for "sea lion."  ;)  Selenelion is a term for the rare celestial event occurring early in the morning of October 8th — a nearly simultaneous lunar eclipse and sunrise.

Just in case you're reading this on Tuesday night, the lunar eclipse occurs between 1:45-6:05 a.m. on Wednesday morning, with a peak between 3:25-4:24 a.m. Pacific Time.

I don't know if it will be clear if enough to see the eclipse, as it's been quite foggy during the past few mornings.

The moon is visible now (~8:30 p.m.): 


But I had to take these pictures in between strands of fog streaming by:


Let me know if you catch a glimpse of the eclipse or even the selenelion!
