    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.

    I am! Local cloud cover is pretty bad, though. :frown:

    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:

    It dark right now and completely overcast, unless the sky clears up in 2 hours I'll probably miss the eclipe :frown:

    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:

    Overcast here right now, so I'll miss the lunar eclipse and occultation.:mad:

    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).
