    Lunar Eclipse

    Will you be able to see the Lunar Eclipse tonight.

    Here in New England (USA) we would have an excellent sunset lunar eclipse but the skies are very overcast. So I think we are SOL on the eclipse.

    elsewhere in the world, enjoy!

    I posted on this earlier...........

    No sign as yet 20.59GMT but the sky is pretty clear maybe 1/8 or 2/8ths alto stratus.

    Should be good

    EDIT: 21.35 and I have about 10% eclipsed............. totally clear view at the moment.

    EDIT#2: It was a good eclipse............. saw it with the wife down the pub.....beautiful clear night

    I watched for this all afternoon. I couldn't see a thing. My view was obstructed by clouds most of the time. The other times, the sun was just too bright. I was viewing mostly through a digital camera pointed at the sun behind some blinds so I didn't have those "sun spots" in my eyes. I didn't see anything special at all. There is supposed to be a better view of one this summer.

    I saw a lunar eclipse several years ago. Maybe 3 years ago? I'm on the east coast of the US and it happened about 1-2am. One of my roomates came in and woke me up to see it. I love stuff like this. As a kid, I loved anything to do with the sun, moon or space in general. I grew out of it but I still have some interest.

    The last time I saw a solar eclipse I was in middle school. (7-8th grade circa 1994)

    I managed to see part of the eclipse. No windows facing the right way so I got neck strain and stopped :P

    Saw most of it disappear, didn't see it go orange.

    There are two key causes of insanity "mum" and "dad".
    If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.

    I had some spectacular views of the lunar eclipse .... amazingly it didn't rain or cloud over at all! Just as well, I gather the last one in 2004 was spoilt by bad weather and the next one in 2008 I think it is, is going to happen at 3 am.
