To the Moon!
Those unfazed by the moon have lost their capacity for wonder. Ten days ago, as anyone who was wandering outside and looking up around 2 a.m. that Friday morning would know, the Beaver Moon lunar eclipse appeared in the night sky. This eclipse was visible for more than six hours, the longest-lasting eclipse in nearly six centuries. Or, the longest-lasting in 580 years, to be more exact. In unrelated news, six days before that, on November 13, the longest-lasting employee of SullivanPerkins, at four decades of service (37 years, to be more exact) was in Joshua Tree National Park, an hour’s drive from Palm Springs, where he took the picture of the moon you see here, using a cheap cellphone camera attached to a small telescope.
