Yesterday I went to Washington, DC to get some night pictures. The forecast was cold, some snow - but clearing after midnight. It turned out to clear just as the moon was rising over Jefferson Memorial.
To prep for the trip I had picked up a compass at REI - then got the reading for the moonrise on the night of the Lunar Eclipse. So, I was able to judge where I needed to be around the Tidal Basin to get the picture I wanted. This all worked out well. With little traffic and few folks out at that hour I got 2-3 days of sightseeing in over one night.
