Lunar Eclipse

Did you miss the eclipse and why did I NOT mention it?

First off, don’t worry, you didn’t miss much if anything. Secondly I didn’t mention it because, well if you look at the cartoon depicting the eclipse you’d soon ask and answer the same question I did – would it even be noticable? Probably not.

Hope everybody in the US is enjoying the holiday weekend. Even if it was the best eclipse going, it wouldn’t matter. The weather here is about as miserable as it can be – without being destructive that is – windy and rain / snow with a temperture of 6oC / 43oF. Snow? Yes, snow, not right on me yet but only a few miles away at elevation.

So everyone stay safe this weekend no matter where you are. I am going to town to get a few things I need for a project and perhaps I will start it – building a new ultra-light spinning rod. Seems like a good thing to do on a weekend like this.

  1. Five years ago I managed to catch a lunar eclipse right at the beginning and kept track of it tll the end. I’m in my 60′s. It was the first ever and THAT one was fabulous!

    • There will be another preumbral eclipse on October 18/19. The next total eclipse will be 15 April 2014 – that should be a good one. There will be a total eclipse of the sun on 03 November 2013 occurring at sunrise on East coast (will just catch the tail end of it maybe).
