So there's going to be a total lunar eclipse tonight, starting around 2 AM EST and going till around 5 AM EST. Will only be visible if it's nighttime where you live during this time, so most of the EU and such will be out of luck, only the Americas will be able to see the full thing. Anyone else plan on watching?

Quote by Wikipedia
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned (in "syzygy") exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon's location relative to its orbital nodes.

Unlike a solar eclipse, which can only be viewed from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. A lunar eclipse lasts for a few hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts for only a few minutes at any given place, due to the smaller size of the moon's shadow. Also unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to view without any eye protection or special precautions, as they are no brighter (indeed dimmer) than the full moon itself.

God dammit it's going to be cloudy and raining all night. Every eclipse either the weather is shit or I'm at work or something and never get to see it.

I'm regularly up until 4 am anyways so why not. Except it's supposed to rain tonight
#8
Starts at midnight here and I usually don't get to sleep until 5, so if the sky is clear, yeah why not.
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

lol who stays up until 2 - 5am for a lunar eclipse

That shit is kinda common



eh, full ones are only come every 3-4 years, though they do occur multiple times throughout the year. Still, if you're up that late usually, as a lot of people are, no reason not to take a peek.

Plus eclipses are just cool.

I'll look, but I'm really counting down to the total solar eclipse coming in 2017. Get mad, Euros; it'll only be visible in Merika.

according to my grandma, that if I look at the moon during an eclipse it creates a direct path for demons to travel into your eyes and soul. you also shouldn't wash your hair during an eclipse because it reduces your immunity against demons or something

The funny thing is I was talking about a total solar eclipse anyway, which is rare and absolutely spectacular. But hey, it's just the sky going dark in the middle of the day. Nothin' special

your grandma was a smart person, washing your hair is bad for it and no one should ever do it unless they got fancy ass shampoo that is extremely overpriced anyway

Actually, this particular kind of eclipse won't happen again for almost 20 years.

To watch the whole show from start to finish, your moon gazing should begin at 10:20 p.m. PDT, when the first faint shadow will start to fall on the moon. This is known as a penumbral eclipse, but be prepared -- it's subtle.



But I don't see anything yet. I'm going to be stepping outside every few minutes tonight.

i didnt plan on staying up for this but now im up i guess ill take a picture or something
