Eclipse

We had perfectly clear skies here last night and got a good view of the lunar eclipse. It was......boring. Haha. If you missed it, don't weep, you'll get another chance in 2007.


This picture was taken 10 to 15 minutes before the eclipse was "complete". If I had waited for it to be complete I wouldn't have had anything to take a picture of now would I? Actually, even when it was complete it was not really all that exciting. The moon often looks just like that through a light cloud cover. For those who missed it and really want to know, it looked a little darker, somewhat "smokey" in appearance.....and....that's it. It stayed that way for a long time, and then a crescent of light grew on the other side. *yawn*

Nice picture!

It was too cloudy here for us to see. I was very disappointed because I was looking forward to it.

jeramey and i went for a walk specifically to watch the eclipse.... i must admit, we had a similar reaction...yawn. we just saw the moon go a bit darker (not as dark as your picture) and kinda redish-brown. thats it. when we squinted our eyes it kinda looked like a giant fireball hurtling towards earth and that was kinda cool. haha.

Well, I missed it. I always miss it. But, at least I got to see your pic of it this time. Thanks.
