Depends on how cold and windy it is. I saw the last lunar eclipse, it was pretty good.

Thanks for the heads up. I'd have missed it completely.

Hmm...since I'll be meeting someone tomorrow who is interested in astronomy, perhaps I will be....assuming weather conditions are favorable.

Is this a possible "date" meeting Moonbear? Good luck if so!:smile:
Would it be improper to ask someone how big his telescope is on the first date?:wink:

Ya, its not exactly clear for me either. I'm hoping the same. I want to take some pictures of the eclipse with my camera. The clouds couldn't have come at a worse time :biggrin:. If we do miss this eclipse i guess we will have to wait till August 28 till we get another lunar eclipse.

Will watch and try to make a picture. Although it isn't something that I find specially fascinating. :smile:

Ehh, where in the hell is the moon at? It is nice and sunny, not a cloud in the sky, and I don't see the moon.

Whoopsy, I missed it :blushing: I started watching Silence of the Lambs at 10 pm and forgot all about it, I just looked outside and can see some stars.. but no moon. I think it is hiding behind the church, or maybe it is still eclipsed :wink: (don't think so).

Just looked out my back door, and the moon was right there nice and bright, so it looks like we missed it :cry:

It was alright, I guess. Cloud cover was pretty bad here (Singapore), but (intermittently) managed to catch at least half the moon getting chewed up.

Hey, that's a nice one!! Unfortunately i missed the entire eclipse due to the fact it was cloudy:cry:. What makes me really P.O. now is that it is now CLEAR:grumpy: :grumpy: :cry: !!!!

I guess the only thing i can do for now is just wait for the next lunar eclipse in August. Oh well, no point in complaining. I just have to wait.

I was going to take some with the telescope. In the end it would have been too much setting it up and I would have missed it.
