keberoxu, I read that too......but it still didn't make any difference here. Because of cloud and showers it was a fizzer, I'm afraid.

We've since had a flood, and much more rain is forecast. Perhaps we should blame the eclipse.

In 1975 waiting for a lunar eclipse on the roof I saw a huge impact rise above the edge of the moon between 9:30 and 10:30 if the moon was clock. It was a two part impact with an expanding debris half circle followed by a smaller central after explosion.

*whew* thanks for explaining, Spaw. Eclipses ARE quite boring for an 11-yr old!

I thought maybe you were in league with those Lune-y-tune "scientists" who were advocating nuking the Moon right out of the firmament a few years ago. They claimed that blasting "her" to bits would improve climate conditions, if I'm remembering correctly.

Yeah, right. Sounds like Udder Moooonacy to me.

Looking through these beautiful photos of the eclipsed moon reminds me of a problem we encountered earlier this year while creating the cover for my CD "Up and Over the Moon!". Photos of the moon are often upside-down or turned left-to-right, because of the way the camera or telescope sees and records the image. The CD cover needed to have the correct 'live' image of the moon, so I asked a friend of mine, an amateur astronomer, for his scientific opinion. I asked him if my artist's depiction of the moon seemed to be upright, or was it tilted or upside down or possibly even inverted? It turned out to be a more difficult question for him to answer than I'd anticipated...

"You have a bunny jumping over a house and casting a shadow on the face of the moon. This indicates that the bunny has jumped high enough to interpolate itself between the sun and the moon. The dimensions of the shadow suggest that the bunny would have to be approximately one-half the size of the earth, which (assuming that the bunny was mostly made of water) would render it approximately equivalent to the mass of the moon, at least on the same order of magnitude. An object of those dimensions placed somewhere in near-earth orbit would cause massive tidal disruptions on earth and the possible perturbation of the moon's orientation, explaining any apparent discrepancy between current terrestrial observations and the depiction on the CD cover. It also implies that any astronaut who happened to be there at the time would see an eclipse of the sun, caused by the occultation of a giant rabbit.

In this case, I tend to think that you could claim artistic licence. I conclude that the artwork should bother no one.

My real problem with it is that it's supposed to be a COW, for heaven's sake!" (Michael Bolton)

I drove home *very* slowly from my rehearsal - because the moon kept gretting smaller and smaller - Did see it at totality.

What I had forgotten (and I don't know if other people see this) is the optical illusion that there is a solid dark disk sliding over the moon!

I was simply saying what I think my 11 year old son was thinking...LOL....Karen and I are just looking in a kind of wonder while Michael has that, "Is that all there is?" look about him. He has learned though from experience not to comment or else his Old Man launched into a long winded story about whatever the subject is (eclipses in this case) and who the hell needs that? Better just to stand in silence and say "yeah" to whatever happens to be said.

"It was quite high in the sky so there was no hint of red.

That's not how it works. The red/brown colour when the moon is eclipsed is because it's still getting some light from the sun shining through the earth's atmosphere, and that's red light for the same reason we get red light at sunset. The higher in the sky the more noticeable the effect would have been, if anything.

If you saw the full eclipse - ie when the crescent of light had gone, then if you didn't see the whole moon as a brownish or reddish disc, that would have been because there was some cloud that was masking it, because there is not much light involved. Or it might have been the "light pollution" from street lights and city lights and so forth.

What we in England wouldn't have got, and what some other people might have, is the way that when the moon is blotted out, all the fainter stars, that had been masked by its light, suddenly pop out into view. But the "light pollution" does for that.

I didn't know about the eclipse until last night when I heard something about on A Prairie Home Companion. Completely by coincidence, a series of events and choices I had made that day had led me to be driving out in the country, with winter coat, hat and gloves, and with a good pair of binoculars in the car.

I was able to watch with such a good view until it got cloudy just at totality. Also there were searchlights coming from somewhere, which made it rather weird until I figured out what they were.

What a thrill. I had seen the 1970 total solar eclipse in Virginia also. I was student teaching in New York, and my father, an aeronautical engineer, picked me up, picked up my mother at home in Philadelphia and we all drove down to Chincoteague and Wallops Island, where NASA was doing experiments.

A few years later we had a partial solar eclipse and someone showed me that if you look on the ground under a tree, all the leaves will make patterns that reflect the state of totality, so that what you would normally see (and never notice) as hundreds of bright dots, becomes hundreds of crescents.

If I didn't know itv was an eclipse I would have thought it was just cloud over the face of the moon. This was about 1.30am in London, the clouds cleared just enough to see the moon but the total eclipse was already over. It was quite high in the sky so there was no hint of red.

katlaughing--I'm no expert, but seem to recall that a lunar eclipse is always accompanied by a solar eclipse two weeks later--lunar eclipse happen at the full moon (obviously!), solar eclipse at the new moon. We have 2-3 eclipse cycles each year, though we only occassionally see them at totality at any given location.

The moon was just magnificent here last night, the wind arranging the clouds into intriguing pictures and "veils". I watched for a long time, but konked out before the eclipse started -- AARRRGGGHHHH -- (the Full Moon'll do that to me sometimes!) But this morning, standing in my snowy backyard watching the sunrise and the last of the stars flicker away, there is such a feeling of peace and contentment around here it's almost tangible!

"Harmonic Concordance" indeed. Maybe those new-age astrologers are right after all!   Let's hope so ...
