How many saw the eclipse tonight. Still going on here as I type this.Moon is almost covered over.Suppose to last till about 11. Rather neat to see but too darn cold to stand out very long. Wish I had a better camera.:sad2:
Next one will be in Sept of 2010 so they say.

Yep, went out and seen it, it was kind of cloudy but I got to see it. I didn't get pics though, I forgot that it was tonight, otherwise I would have pulled out the telescope with camera on it. Now I have to wait till 2010.

If ya think the moon is neat try the sun when it has an eclipse. I was living in Washington State the last one I encountered. Where I lived it was total and it was very spooky. It was a beautiful day and inside of 10 min. It was so dark black it just made chills go up my spine.:crazy::eek:oooh:

Off the top of my head.. I thought when I was younger I heard the next one wouldn't be like for another 30 years. Could definetely be wrong though.

I think it was 1969 or 70, when I lived in Virginia Beach VA. it was a total E. of the sun. Bout 1 pm, bright clear sunny day. it first became a weird kind of hazy look then total darkness like it was 1am. it was something I'll never forget. Reminded me of a Nuke war going on. When moon covered sun, I could see what looked like flames burning around the moon. I looked at it with bare eyes
. I remember the news saying some went blind over looking at it with bare eyes. guess I was lucky at the time.
I have never seen anything like it since.
