On a ship that sailed the moon
Is anyone else watching this fascinating eclipse?

I'm hopping between my keyboard and the window - I've quite a good view here.
3rd-Mar-2007 11:22 pm (UTC)
I'm just in for some more tea. The back garden affords the best view.

Wow! Thanks for alerting me

it's amazing

the moon is slowly being covered by the red planet abd it really is red! And the darker the moon gets the brighter the starts get!

" runs outside again!"

The stars are definitely more numerous now the moon has turned red - or it could be because MWNN turned off the kitchen light. Either way, I'm back in from the garden now and am able to watch through my study window.

We have very little light pollution here and it's stunning, especially through binoculars

I'm alternating between the garden wall and the laptop, Rod is out with the binoculars praising the internet for letting me know this was happening

Loony GSD was convinced it was playtime and promptly lost her Kong in the dark. We have more light pollution than we used to have, thanks to the houses they built on former allotment land at the back of the house. The town is in a hollow bowl below that and the sky used to be totally black prior to the building.

It's red! It's red!

...ok ...brown-ish.

No, it's defniitely red - brownish red - ox blood we used to call it in painting box colours. I'll be able to see it through my study window in about an hour, which is when it should start turning silver again.

It's very very pretty :)
3rd-Mar-2007 11:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, I am. Really weird.

I have to work the brain really hard to grasp why it looked red.

My daughter was watching in York, I was watching here, and we were discussing it on IM. I've just put a pic on my journal!
6th-Mar-2007 10:44 pm (UTC)
I saw. It remains the only one posted on my FList, to my knowledge.

We even had a fantastic view of it in S. London, where light pollution is usually a problem. How lucky to have such a perfect night to see it.

It makes a change. We've been denied the meteor showers for the past few years because of cloud, and just as the December comet was coming over the horizon, a huge bank of cloud cover rolled in from the south.

Of course, being at my parents' we were all watching. My dad took a good photo.
6th-Mar-2007 10:47 pm (UTC)
Will you post it soon?
6th-Mar-2007 10:48 pm (UTC)
I forgot to ask him for it.
4th-Mar-2007 12:20 am (UTC)
I forgot all about it until I read it on LJ... the white is coming back now. I tried to take a photo but it wasn't very successful. *sighs*
4th-Mar-2007 01:28 am (UTC)
Isn't brill!! I was popping in and out checking progress and all the while pondering Invasion of the Triffids scenario :) Okay not a meteor shower but still :)
6th-Mar-2007 10:52 pm (UTC)
It was. We haven't had sight of a meteor shower for years thanks to the rotten weather.

How's it going with the plans for MidiMeet btw? I could do with an update for the community.

I was so please it was a clear night and we were afforded such a great view. I was the only person in our street wandering round staring at the sky though.
6th-Mar-2007 10:49 pm (UTC)
We watched from the back garden. Some of the neighbours hung out of their bedroom windows for a while and then went in.
4th-Mar-2007 01:43 pm (UTC)
Too cloudy here. *sigh*
6th-Mar-2007 10:50 pm (UTC)
Pity. We've had cloud covering the meteor showers for a few years and missed sighting the comet last winter because clouds rolled in just as the comet was about to appear.
