WASHINGTON, D.C. — With minutes to go before the eclipse reached it peak in Washington, dozens of workers from the Watergate Office Building gathered on the lawn of the Watergate apartments.
In high spirits, they looked upward through their eclipse glasses. Adding to the picnic atmosphere was a table of refreshments. A reporter was offered a Moon Pie. He took the chocolate. Also available was Eclipse Gum.
By about 2:45 it was cloudy again. A few people looked at the sky from balconies at the apartment house.
