Lunar Eclipse

If you live in the western hemisphere, or western Africa or Europe, you have the chance to see a total lunar eclipse this evening. Fortunately, I am not in New York City. I am upstate and the lack of light pollution makes the eclipse a sight to behold.

The moon is now completely covered by the shadow of the earth and it is a purplish, brown color. It is a great distraction from nail biting time.
