I got up at 4 AM just to see the Lunar Eclips this morning and check out thing on the computer, taken a break every now and them to go to the front of the house to see the moom but I'm afraid that by the time the Eclips is taken place, the moon will be behind the mountain that sits in-front of our home.
Oh well

5 AM. My wife, daughter and I went for a ride out into the open to see if we could catch a glimpse, but it has rained here in southern Manitoba; still too cloudy.

At work right now. We've been taking turns watching it. For once we have a lovely clear night. Beautiful site.

I had a good view and watched until it was complete, saw a pale red glow.

AH HA! That explains it! I've been up late the last few nights working like a dog. Last night the full moon was so bright it was like daylight out, then when I shut er down at 3am it was pitch black, I've had my head burried in my work and didn't even know there was an eclipse

Too bad I didn't actually LOOK outside!

We lucked out and got up just in time to watch. Cold clear night made for a great sight to behold. Then back to bed and a few more hours of sleep.

.....a beautiful crisp clear night last night (one good thing about life Hi atop Iron Mountain FINALLY )

I was wise enough to try NOT to move the other mountains to the east and north of me, choosing instead, the easier option of waiting till the MOON was in the south eastern part of the sky!

What a view, I don't think I've ever seen the Copper Moon (as its called) before!

Saw some of the Perseid meteor shower down in Idaho. Sat outside on lawn chairs and didn't even need a jacket. What a treat - to see the night sky and not be wearing a parka!

Hoped to see the lunar eclipse last night, but all I could see was that it got a little bit darker. The only clouds in the sky were covering the moon. (But I saw some bats zipping around.)

We were camping at the Elora Gorge (Ontario). Got up at 4:30 and walked up to the comfort station and then to the fence-line where we had a perfect view of the entire eclipse. Stayed until nearly 6am, taking pictures and talking to the nice man who came up and offered us his binoculars then went back to our campsite for coffee.

Missed the eclipse here in Carolina.
However, this evening I discovered a useful site for predicting appearances of the International Space Station, which
is a grand sight if you have never seen it. Here's the link:

http://www.heavens-above.com/

It guides you to other visible satellites too.
