We get to see at around 7:30 p.m. in Australia. It's the last days of winter here, but unseasonable warm, so were going to have a barbeque dinner and really enjoy it....
pity I'm on duty from 11:00 p.m. though - be sort of an anti-climax to the night.
Well is anybody staying up for the total lunar eclipse?? It is about 11:45 p.m. P.D.T. here on the West Coast and the moon just cleared the tall trees to the Southeast of the house. There is no fog above the coast and it should be quite the light show starting around 1:30 a.m. local time. Now to figure out what to listen to while I am enjoying mother nature's light show!! I still have about 2 hours to decide before going back outside to watch the event..
KrisW - I posted that choice of "Dark Side Of The Moon" on another forum, but a little too obvious. I do live in Northern Humboldt County - wink, wink, nudge, nudge... I may go with Pink Floyd's "The Wall", or maybe some Frank Zappa such as "Apostrophe/ Overnight Sensation". A little over an hour to go till the show begins!!!
Well, the laram went off, I am wide awake. The fog is so thick I canm barely see my neighbors house. I don't think I will wake the children, they've seen fog before. So, anything exciting on the forums I am missing?
Wouldja believe it!? 7/10 cloud cover - but a small gap appeared where we could see it for a short time. Kids were very impressed - asked when the next one was coming - (LOL There are things that dad doesn't know). The F/A-18's flying exersizes tonight probably got a closer view.
I got up at 4:30 a.m. (my regular time, just a lucky coincidence), and it was just starting. Checked it every 10 minutes or so. It looked like a bite being taken out of the moon! At 6:00 I woke my son up, and when we went outside it was completely covered and red! Unfortunately, he wasn't that impressed. His comment was, "Yeah Mom, I can watch this on the internet a thousand times without standing outside, freezing in my pajamas and getting my feet wet!" Well, at least one of us was impressed! It sunk behind the treeline shortly after, so we didn't get to see it reappear. Sorry some of you were thwarted by clouds!
I left the house at 5:20 this morning, and was able to see it low on the horizon today. At first, I wasn't sure if it was an eclipse or clouds, but then I saw a faint outline of the missing piece. I heard about the eclipse yesterday, but didn't think it would be visible from the east coast.
Well I just woke up after staying up after 4 a.m. P.D.T. to watch the eclipse.. It was a nice sight and where I am located at the moon looked to have a reddish orange color to it during the full eclipse. Luckily, no fog here right above the ocean for once!!
