    I just saw on the news that there is gonna be a Lunar Eclipse tonight.They said people in the Eastern U.S. will be able to see it best.
    This will be cool,I'm not much into this kind of stuff but I think it'll be pretty cool.

    Ed, I had a newspaper clipping about it here on the frig, but it's disappeared... :roll_eyes: think it went to work with my husband... anyhow, I think it said around 6:30 PM in our area we should be able to see it.
    We're not too far, so maybe check it out around that time?

    John, thanks for the reminder!

    Well, we went down to the river and saw as much of it as there was to see! Folks in the Eastern US got the best view, I guess, since the whole thing started just as the sun set and the moon rose for them. For us, it all began before sunset, so as we watched, on the back side of it all, got to see the sliver/crescent grow back into the full round :cool2: Very cool!

    I got off work at 6:15. Got home, and while I was letting the dog out, I noticed that the moon was a crescent. I knew it was supposed to be full, but it wasn't. It was perfect viewing. Usually when there's an eclipse, it's cloudy. I hadn't seen this in a long time, let alone so vivid. Coolest thing I've seen in the sky since Hale Bop. There's gonna be a solar eclipse on the 19th. Probably won't get to see that one.:sad2:

    Yeah, it was neat... daughter fussed a bit about bothering to get bundled up to go down to the water and see it and I realized... shoot, by the time there's another one (2 1/2 years?) she'll be away at college... so I insisted :roll_eyes: Was worth it :lol:

    Didn't know about the upcoming solar one. Will have to check that out, too!
