Polyphemus Moth

What type of moth?
Hello –
My husband found this moth attached to the tire of his car which he parks outside our home in St. Francis, WI. It had laid eggs all around the edge of the tire. When I tried to remove it (it was very sluggish) it opened it wings. Gorgeous!!!! Is this a hawk eye moth?

This is our Bug of the Month for July 2006, a Polyphemus Moth.
