I stayed up late last night watching the eclipses. I didn't know they were so colorful.

When I first saw it, it was as red as a tomato. Then it turned green! A little while later it turned yellow for a short time. Then it was red again.

I watched it utter fascination as the eclipses kept repeating until I fell sound asleep.

I don't know how long it went on.

We have a chance at it tonight, if the weather clears a bit.

I'd like to have a little of what you guys were drinking when you were watching it last night.

Me too on all counts. Apparently we can also see the doomed satellite looking to the south at 6:09PST tonight.

Now wait, was there an eclipse last night, or are some people just experienceing bad air pollution? I just got my weekly NASA sicence news email and it says it's tonight. It clouded up so thick last night you couldn't even tell there was a moon behind it, so I couldn't tell either way.

Of course, it usually clouds up just when there's something interesting to see. A new comet to look at can make it cloud up for as much as a month!

It is really tonight, Wednesday, February 20. (Now my title is correct! ) Unforunately, last night was a GORGEOUS clear night and tonight is cloudy.

My local paper messed up yesterday and got me all confused.

Looks like that's the way it's shaping up here, too. It's startin' to cloud up pretty good. But what the heck, we really need the rain that's on the way.

Have Y'all seen the space station yet? You can't miss it when it comes overhead. It's very, very bright. I keep trying to catch it when the shuttle is up, but can never seem to. There's a tracking program on the NASA site.

Good luck tonight everybody, hope the seeing is good in your area.

Jim

The weather guy says we have a better than 50/50 chance to see this luner eclipse tonite. Mid winter Northern Ohio those are good odds. I hope we are lucky this time. We have missed a few of them because of bad conditions.
The space station is a real treat to see if you get the chance. I have caught it's race across the sky a number of times. Once shortly after the shuttle had undocked where there were two closely spaced dots racing one after the other. That is a good memory especially since it was on a partly cloudy evening when pure luck played a part.

Here's the link to the NASA site that lets you calculate sighting oppotunities for the Space Station (and other stuff). Play around with it some. Click on "start applet", fill in your zip code, then select a sky object. It will even draw a "sky map" for you if you want.

Have fun.
