Linda Hubbard Gulker first moved to Menlo Park a really long time ago (long enough that she started kindergarten at Hillview School and graduated there from 8th grade in the days it was a K-8). Following her four years at Menlo-Atherton High School, she went “SoCal” to attend UCLA and stayed too long in the Southland. She moved back to Menlo Park 20 years ago to find some things had changed – and some things remained the same. When she’s not blogging or taking snapshots for InMenlo, she’s jogging the Dish or other nearby hills.

Serious amateur photographer Mark Gerow created this image thanks to the full moon, using a Nikon D7200 with a Nikor 18-200 mm lens.

He explains: “[There are] two images merged via Photoshop. The tree was taken with flash at 18mm to highlight branches — the moon was in that shot but much smaller. [For the] second shot, I zoomed in on moon at 200mm without flash and underexposed.”

Will they skies clear sufficiently to allow Menlo residents to see the total eclipse of the moon? It’s scheduled to begin around 7:30 pm tonight, with a total eclipse from 8:41 to 9:43 pm, and ending shortly before 11:00 pm.
