Lunar Eclipse

You know what a geek I am, right? Especially about astronomical oddities. It looks like we're about to get a great one. If you're in position to see even part of this weekend's lunar eclipse, there's a potential bonus - the way the sun, earth and the moon are lined up, you have a chance to see the sun on the eastern horizon and the blood red moon 180 degrees away on the western horizon. Check this article or Space.com for the details and best viewing times.

  2. I saw the bright red Moon just peeking above the western horizon--an awesome neon, glowing red! What a sight!

    Unfortunately, the Moon set below the mountain range to our west before the eclipse took place, so we didn't get to see it.
