Tonight! Total lunar eclipse in most of the world

Theres a total eclipse of the moon toning visible in a fair slab of the world.

There is a neat website where you type in your city (see the box at the left) and the eclipse times will pop out.

Watched it from the beach near here. This is a pic of the "blood" stage that my lady took.

Re: Tonight! Total lunar eclipse in most of the world

I had the pleasure of watching the last half of the event at the beginning of my evening watch, some ten miles off the Batemans Bay coast of NSW. Peekaboo clouds spoiled it to a small degree, but it helped the long watch go by. They should schedule these things more often when we are at sea!

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Tonight! Total lunar eclipse in most of the world

We had no idea this was coming.

It happened during my 12-3am watch making the passage to the Galapagos and I watched the whole thing. Really cool to see, my wife caught the end of it when she came up to relieve me.

Oops! Just now saw your query, Van D. Sorry to be slow in answering.

Not long after that posting, we had our roller furling Solent stay come loose from the deck, naturally in heavy sea conditions and about 20 kts. Short version: before we could get it secured, both the furler and the sail were trashed. So, our northward migration has been put on hold while we rectify the damage. In the Pittwater now, looks like it will be at least mid June before we head onward. Plans are to get up to the Moreton Bay area, then decide if we're going further N or head for New Cal, or something else entirely. Time will tell... we don't make very firm plans any more!

Not what we had expected, but worse things have happened at sea!

Cheers,

Jim
