COLUMBIA — Sky watchers lucked out Wednesday night when a dismal forecast for cloud cover failed to materialize, giving star gazers clear skies for the last total lunar eclipse visible in Missouri until December 2010. The Central Missouri Astronomical Association hosted a viewing party to give people an opportunity to a view the eclipse from the top of the MU Physics Building.
