Purple Sea Star survey on South side of Breakwater at Alki. 40 Purple Stars with 7 with very minor SSWD spots and 1 with advanced SSWD. General size of stars was 15cm. Breakwater is 75 meters long. Was PC with about 10 knot wind 40 deg f. Thanks to Noelle Congdon for spotting stars that I could not bend far enough to see. Breakwater is 75 meters long. Other marine life included chitons, anemones (one very green Moonglow) , keyhole limpets, mussels and sea cucumbers.
Early morning total lunar eclipse was not visible due to clouds in Seattle so live TV feed from NASA was only option....or transporter trip to CA but I misplaced my keys to the transporter....
