Good job Jimmy!  Wife Melinda and I went chasing it too and caught it from a 
few miles up on the Mount Lemmon Highway.  We also spotted it with minutes to 
spare, 13h52m by my calculations.  Pics and description on the blog:

Thank you Tom!  Pierre set the bar high. I'll see if I can do better next 

What may have impacted your site was that there looked to be a fairly heavy 
layer of haze or smoke around the southern point of the White Tanks and over 
toward the Estrella's. Knowing your location, I could see where that might have 
been a factor. There was sufficient haze to the West to make me question being 
able to pick out the  Moon. As I wasn't using a computer, I almost missed it 
because I was sweeping a bit too far south at first but adjusted and picked it 
up with 7 minutes to spare.

Thank you,
