    Exclamation Meteor Shower and Total Lunar Eclipse to Wow Skywatchers This Month

    Skywatchers, grab your blankets. December's night sky spectacular will feature the best meteor shower of 2010 as well as the only total lunar eclipse of the year -- sights that should outshine any New Year's Eve fireworks display in terms of sheer wonder.

    Thank you Dark Knight. I used to work with Astronomers doing voiceovers for their educational programs. It was very enlightening.

    So we bundled up last night to watch the meteor shower with the -2 windchill only to find clouds blocking our view. Hoping for a cloud-free night tonight in hopes of catching a few!

    I'm also hoping next Monday is cloudless so we can watch the lunar eclipse!

    Yes, Portland is socked in too.

    It is celebrated as a refraction of light where the earth moves inbetween the sun and the moon, a celestial event. There are 3 days that follow when families can regroup and put any unhappiness between them to rest. Make things right between themselves. This video, tho 8 min long, does show what a master event this is.

    The next time the Winter Solstice and a Lunar eclipse will occur on the same day is in 2094. The last time this occured was in 1698. Amazing.

    For me this comes from the goodness of our creator, no matter what religion we are. It is universal and of great magnitude. xox

    Cool

    Very cool! We were just outside to see it with telescope and binoculars. Amazingly, no cloud cover and minimal light pollution! From far away, the moon looks red!

    I just drug the scope and cameras back in from observing the eclipse... offloading over 7 gigs of work... hopefully I got a good shot or 2. I'll post images in the next couple of days.

    I got some pretty cool photos, but didn't bother using my tripod or anything for when it was totally covered, so it's kinda blurry. It was clear as a bell here! I was so lucky.



    Before the eclipse



    A progression



    Oooone more before I went to bed...though I couldn't hold the camera still enough to get a clear shot with the settings I was using, and I was too lazy to go get the tripod from my truck

    It was beautiful to watch

    Wink

    Think any witches were concerned about "Blood On the Moon"??? It was also the Winter Solstice.
