Pentacrest provides great view for intrepid stargazers
The moon in various stages of its eclipse appears in the sky above the Old Capitol on Tuesday morning.

A few intrepid stargazers were out on the Pentacrest early Tuesday morning to watch the total lunar eclipse which was visible early Tuesday over Iowa City. The earth began casting its shadow on the moon at about 1 a.m., and the eclipse lasted for several hours. The multiple exposure image above shows the moon in the earlier stages of the eclipse. In case you missed it, another total lunar eclipse will be visible here in October.
