Lunar eclipse tonight/early AM tomorrow

Post by GreyCoyote » Tue Oct 07, 2014 7:32 pm

If you want to try-out your howl, tonight is the night.

Full lunar eclipse!

Details are all over the net. The fine folks at NASA also have a really good section on it too. Here is NASA's pdf that gives timing and totality info on one sheet: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OHfigur ... -Fig03.pdf

I would SO like to be seeing this from the playa! :mrgreen:

Cool! I love staring at the moon. I try to stay up for lunar events when I can.
Thanks for the heads up!

In northen Nevada it's supposed to b total around 03:30am. Right when I get up for another day.
I could be wrong but isn't there supposed to be a partial solar eclipse later in the day?

Ya, is there any way we could reschedule that for a more convenient viewing time?

They say you can watch the colors of all the sunsets and sunrises reflecting off the moon tonight. I plan to get the 3 dogs and head up to McLaren Park here in SF at about 2:30am. Watch the the progression. Just me and the dogs, and the raccoons and coyotes. Though I have checked the NASA link, I haven't been able to find out how much I need to drink for optimum viewing pleasure. Who knows, Fishy, maybe from the park's peak, looking east across the bay, I can see your deck. Anyway, I think I'll leave the EDM at home. Nice weather out. I had sushi for dinner. Evening folks.

The partial solar eclipse will be on Thursday, 23 Oct., after a night of Orionid meteor shower. :D

That's right. You can't have a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse on the same day, because for a solar eclipse the moon has to be between the sun and the earth, and for a lunar eclipse it has to be on the other side of the earth. Takes about two weeks to move from one position to the other.

Woof. Although I missed a good bit, I did see blood on the moon.

watched most of the whole thing, from my bed, no less!
Did some Pagan ceremony stuff and all, then back to sleep.
It was sort of interesting, it seemed to agitate the forest creatures......

We can catch the last one in 2020 which appears over North and South America, the Pacific Ocean, and its neighboring regions on Nov. 29-30. This last lunar eclipse will also be the longest of the year, lasting 4 hours, 20 minutes and 59 seconds.
