Over the course of the first 2 weeks in Baton Rouge, some of our days were packed with meetings and conference calls, some of them quite early in the morning, Often times it was still dark out when we woke up. A benefit of that is that it allows me to observe the total lunar eclipse on the morning of Oct. 8. The picture below doesn’t do it justice, but it is quite a sight to see. Does a full moon affect how people drive? The evidence seems to say no, although sometimes it seems like it does.
