The moon nears totality as seen from downtown Pasadena, California. The cupola of Pasadena City Hall is seen in the foreground. Regulus appears at upper left. I was fortunate to see the eclipse at all, as it had been raining intermittently all day. Scattered clouds during totality made the moon invisible at times.
