This is Hyalophora cecropia. The moth labeled "redwood moth" in James' reference link is Hyalophora euryalus, and not Antheraea polyphemus which has brownish wings and one large eyespot on each hindwing. Hyalophora cecropia is not found in your area—did you happen to raise these from another source?
