Eclipse

ECLIPSE….Here’s what tonight’s lunar eclipse looked like from my backyard. Pretty exciting, eh?

Of course, the whole problem with lunar eclipses is that since the moon waxes and wanes anyway, they don’t really look all that spectacular, do they? Still, it does make me wish I had a longer lens for my trusty digital camera.

In any case, if it’s full bore “Full Moon Fever” coverage that you lust after, Space.com has you covered.
