Total Lunar eclipse tonight

Quote:
Oct 27, 2004 - If you’re looking up at the sky tonight and thinking the moon looks unusually colourful, you’re not just seeing things. A total lunar eclipse, which occurs when the entire moon passes through the Earth’s inner shadow or umbra, will make the moon appear anything from bright orange to blood red to dark brown.
The eclipse is expected to begin around 9:14 p.m. EDT and end around 12:54 a.m. EDT. Weather permitting, the eclipse will be visible across Canada and the rest of North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Antarctica.

It will be the last eclipse of 2004 and the last total lunar eclipse until 2007. The eclipse will be safe to view with the naked eye. And if you own a pair of binoculars, besides magnifying the view, they will make the colour range brighter and easier to see.




Get yer cameras and long lenses out Too bad it's kinda cloudy here.

I'm ready, but not too sure that Oregon will be lucky enough to see it... High cloud cover at present, and think we are stuck with it for a few more days...

Damn clouds, I did catch the first part of the partial eclipse so far though. Don't think I will be able to catch the total eclipse.

Crappy quality because they are 100% crops and shooting through clouds...I need a big *** telephoto...

Well, when you work in a basement with no windows and don't get off until 12:30 am, you kinda miss things like this!

So I'm counting on you guys to show me some great shots!
