Tonight's total lunar eclipse should be visible over all of North America clear skies allowing.

Cool.

2:30 AM is a wee bit late but, hey, the way things have been going, I'll more than likely be up to pee....
Don't go make a mess now.... take care of your business before staring at the sky, ok?

I shot this last night in a dry run with my recently-repaired scope.



All systems are GO and I'm ready but, typical of the Pacific Northwest, clouds might get in my way. :tranquillity:

Despite technical difficulties stemming mainly from being out of practice with my equipment, aggravated by delaying preparations until the last minute, I was able to get a few shots of the eclipse, albeit at lower magnification than I had originally hoped for. This was taken slightly before mid-eclipse, with minimal post processing done around 3AM. Hope to be better prepared next time...

Unprepared or not, that's a great shot, Don! Yours, too, Joe!

I did not get out of bed for this event - clouds all night, torrential rains and wind today...

Another one is coming on October 8. I'm not sure if NSW will see it or not. Also, North America will have a partial solar eclipse on October 23.

I thought it said "street walkers". Anyway, we had clouds, wind, snow, and no chance of seeing anything. Snow!!! And here we had the bike out a couple of days ago.

Peace
