Who is going to (be able to) see the Lunar Eclipse this Monday night??
It will visible for most of North and South America. A few parts of Europe and Asia, also. Sorry India, not for you, and not for most of Africa.

An Incentive to watch:
Just remember that as you look up at it, the eyes of Lizard of Oz will be watching, too, at that very same eclipse :p:p:p

We'll see a bit of it over here in Aus.

I've seen many Lunar Eclipses. A SOLAR Eclipse is what I want to see!

Apparently you will only be able to see the start from the UK, before sunrise as well. Only the US can really see the whole thing.

WTH does any of that information in the OP mean? Does NASA not understand that we're not all massive nerds?

Snow in my area ain't going to let up until sometime tomorrow, so I guess I'm not getting the opportunity to see this.

Well... I did leave an unopened bag of pizza chips in my car..... :whi:

That link was helpful. I tried going out, but I just hated the weather too much to bother staying.

I'm seeing it all right now, the moon is right overhead and it's blood red!

Amazing that this particular type of Lunar eclipse only happens every 500 years...


EDIT: Also, for the hell of it, have dancing Llamas.

Greatest eclipse phase happened a minute ago. Wow.

Did somebody say "bloodred"? :ton:

I love the copper tinge of brighter lunar eclipses, so mysterious and pretty at the same time. It is great to see and I am enjoying it! :jmp:

I still can't get over the fact that were I live, the Eclipse it's hidden behind a very thick layer of snowy clouds.:hea:

Lunar eclipses are :cool: but I prefer the solar variety. :) The proximities of the celestial bodies (our sun, moon, and the Earth) and apparent size of the first two being just so as to allow a total eclipse to occur and be witnessed is beyond what I would pass off as simply coincidence. I believe there's something much deeper to it all. :)

I drove to witness it from a mountain top lol. If I stayed put, I wouldn't have seen it.

I live behind a hill lol.

**** YEAH LUNAR ECLIPSE

The sky was perfect here. I stood outside freezing my tits off from 1:30am - 4am with my video camera recording a time lapse of the whole show for those who weren't able to see it. I'll edit it later, upload to YouTube, and embed it here. It was beautiful. :D
