^ Shouldn't that read "...meanwhile on other worlds" or "...meanwhile in another part of the universe", MR.GG? :)

If you have a half-decent telescope or a pair of kickass binoculars, be sure to go out after sunset and check out Venus. Rght now it looks like this:

^ GOT IT! Thanks man! 8)

EDIT: Could see barely with one set binoculars and not bad at all with my old refractor scope. 8)

It looks like it's on the wane of an eclipse. But from the sun or could it be a spaceship and is at round? :mrgreen:

I think that's just due to your point of observation on the Earth relative to the positions of the Sun and Venus. The same principle with how you see the shapes of the Moon.

@Kirk If you right click and hold on the icon where the pic failed to load you should get the option to open the image in a new window. It will then load. Some sites prevent indirect linking of pics.

Thanks Poly, I did all that. It seems Internet Explorer will only let me do certain things. Sometimes if I rt. click on "open picture" or "show picture" it works. Not this time and the other options are all dimmed and not responding. :|

Tonight there will be a total lunar eclipse. It will be visible only in North and South America. Here's the timing:

West coast: eclipse starts 9:53 pm, totality from 12:06 am to 12:54 am.

East coast: eclipse starts 12:53 am, totality from 3:06 am to 3:54 am.

Totality begins when the shadow of the Earth completely covers the Moon. During this time you should still be able to see the Moon, as it's illuminated by sunlight refracted through the Earth's atmosphere. The Moon should appear deep red, for the same reason that a sunset appears red.

If your weather is bad, you can still watch it via webcast here...

Thanks MTF. 8)
All I have to do is remember to look up! The best blood moon I've ever seen was in the '80's at the 4,000ft. level up in the Sierra's. We we're on top of a roof in the summertime, totally awe inspiring sight. The big orb hung there like a giant x-mas light bulb. It looked perfectly round. Very humbling sight. I'm really excited, this should be a good show too!
The place burned down after we left. The girl forgot to turn off the stove as she was closing up*. I heard the sirens from the roof of our house headed that way around 3 AM. Found out why the next day. Of course the owners thought I must have had something to do with it! :roll:

A solar eclipse is over too quick, and as soon as its done, the interest is 100% gone - cant think of anything similar to compare that to though right now...
A lunar eclipse is way better IMO.

Was going to watch it, but it's supposed to start snowing tonight, so I won't be able to view it...
