Lunar Eclipse Tonight! Totally Cool!
Posted by gottabkd on Wednesday, February 20, 2008
That’s right folks… a total eclipse of the
sun… er moon. Sorry that was the other song running through my head… 😉
It happening tonight between the hours of 7pm and midnight with the best viewing from 10pm to 10:50pm EST in my area…. it could even appear blood red or orange if we are lucky. The weather will be cold dropping down to about minus 10 degrees here… it could be worse, in Alberta they are expecting it to be -32 degrees burrr… so dress warmly.
Spectacular is all I can say…
It will also be visible anywhere in Canada as long as it’s not cloudy… but even with some clouds it could be really cool to. I plan on taking some pictures, hopefully the PC will let me download them to show you but if not… why not take your own shots. You may need a long lens and a tripod to get a good picture, but the different phases could still show up well on your camera phone… hmmmm, must try that one

snuggle with the special someone, keep warm4) Hot drink of your choice – coffee, tea, hot chocolate
5) Car – or bus, feet, truck… to get you away from the city lights
6) Patience – hey it’s a long show
So get out there tonight, grab a friend and have some fun. Head for the outskirts of the city or up the CN Tower and catch this event. What ever you do, stay warm!!
