Supermoon Eclipse
« on: September 26, 2015, 07:12:42 AM »

Full moon Sunday night.  A/K/A The Blood Moon. Should be interesting if the weather is clear.  It only occurs 4-5 times a century.  Starts around 8 PM EST will full coverage around 10 or so.

I think as long as it's clear here even though we are in town we should be able to see it ... we are in a bit of a dark area

We saw it in Seattle.  I thought I would have to travel east but there was no cloud cover last night.  We live in the trees so that was no good so we drove around and found a place to see it.  Pretty neat.   Not as bright as that pictures but still cool.  Later I got my telescope and went to a friend's house to look at it.  My telescope could not make a good image, I guess due to the lack of light.  But cameras seemed to do alright.  Anyway, my kids can now tell their future kids that their dad forced them to go see this.
