Total Eclipse of the Moon

Save the date:  10 Dec 2011!

A whole bunch of us Earthlings will be able to see this lunar eclipse.  (Oh crap, unless you live in the damn cloudy Pacific Northwest, US of A.)

Here’s a fun factoid sheet:  lunar eclipse.

I’m a weirdsmobile and proud of it!

      The PDF is amusing to me because the NASA folks just knew there were geeks out there who would at least look at the pretty graphics!

      Are you likely to have clear skies in mid-December?

    Looks like we will see about the same amount of eclipse – I’m exactly on the U4 line. Should be pretty dark by then too.

    Thanks! Yes, I’m off to bed now, it is pumpkin time :(

    Poof!

    Dammit! I waited too long, how the hell am I to get up those stairs…

    Super-cool! Thanks for the heads-up. Dar. Literally. Oh well, I amuse myself at any rate.

    I hail from Eugene, Oregon, so I remember many any evening where I’d wait for an eclipse or meteor shower only to see . . . rain. In my eyeballs. (Now I get a lovely sheet of smog instead–woo-hoo!)

      Hi! Welcome! So pleased you stopped by!

      Yep, we’ve had clear weather at night for a few nights, but surely by the 10th, the perverse weather will reappear and make me grumble. That’s what NASA-TV is for, though!

    I’m in eastern Washington so will be crossing my fingers. I hated missing recent aurora sightings, so maybe will be lucky!

      I hope you do get to see the eclipse! I miss the celestial phenomena that I was usually able to see so easily in wintertime Alaska. Summer, with all the light, was a wash!
