This Saturday evening, the moon will rise blood red as the total lunar eclipse will be in full affect at moonrise. The best view from here in the states will be on the east coast...the best view of the eclipse goes to Europe, Africa, Western Russia and the Middle East. I wish I had a good camera and telescope with a moon filter...this will be a good photo opportunity.

Excerpt:
In the USA, the eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises on Saturday evening. Observing tip: Find a place with a clear view of the eastern horizon and station yourself there at sunset. As the sun goes down behind you, a red moon will rise before your eyes.

Rising moons are often reddened by clouds or pollution, but this moon will be the deep, extraordinary red only seen during a lunar eclipse. As you watch it ascend into the night, imagine what it would be like to stand by Shackleton Crater watching from the opposite direction.

Thanks for the heads up Artie. I might try a few snaps with my cheap camera weather permitting just to see if I can get anything useful. 8)

I caught the tail end of totality...it was crystal clear here for the viewing. It really left me wishing I had a good camera...wow...what a view!

We still had cloud cover from the snow squalls during moon rise. sad.gif

Just went and looked again, clouds breaking up enough to see it was only about 1/3 covered now. With the cold wind out there I'm going to pass on trying to get any photos. Much more comfy to look out my bedroom window. :wink:
