Just a reminder that there will be a total lunar eclipse Monday night/Tuesday morning.  Check this out to see when the show starts in your time zone.  We're suppose to have a spring snow storm tomorrow but hopefully the weather will cooperate Tuesday morning.

Pretty cool site, Mark. I bookmarked it.

I hope the sky is clear enough to see the eclipse. Also hope that it is a 'blood' moon. Have never seen one.

Should be pretty red this time. The big event will be in 2017. Total solar eclipse across the US. I'm heading north to center line. Can't wait.

Have seen a total solar eclipse once, many years ago. Was a bright sunny day when it happened. The look of the landscape was surreal, to say the least. I'll never forget it!

hope our clear weather lasts till then. when we lived in AUS in the 70's there was a full solar eclipse, not only was the light weird, all the animals went dead quiet, it was quite strange

Thank you for the link, Mark; like Kevin said, that IS a neat website.  Now I know just about when to look for the greatest part of the eclipse.

Now that was COOL! 

Last night's overcast skies cleared completely here in east central Illinois.  I think that's the first time I've seen a 'blood moon'.  Thanks for the heads up, Mark!

Same thing here in E OH, heavy cloud cover. I only managed to catch a brief glimpse of it maybe 3/4 eclipsed. No red tint at all. [frown] [frown]

Fortunately the weather cooperated here in Northern Colorado.  Headed up the canyon after work to a campground by the river.

Here is the setup I used for most of the eclipse pictures.  My Canon 60D attached to a Celestron 5" with dewcap.  Used a focal reducer to achieve an approximate 780mm f6.3 telephoto lens.

Of course, I had to take some Coleman stuff.  The lantern is not on fire!

All clear in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Beautiful moon. Looked spectacular even thru my foggy eyes.

Mark your calendar for October 8th, 2014 Kyle. Another total lunar eclipse and the entire eclipse is visible from the your neck of the woods.

We here in Alaska had a great show last night it was clear out and it was red and the full Eclipse lasted for at least a half hour today rainy/snowy so we just got to see it.
