  1. Just in time for Election Day, we get a total eclipse of the moon! (As if things haven't been weird enough on the political scene! :rolleyes: ) The article has a chart that tells when you can see the eclipse in the US and there's links to online sites that will be covering the eclipse if you aren't in an area where it can be seen.

    A Blood Moon total lunar eclipse will occur on November 8, 2022 and will look similar to this view of one from July 2018. Here's everything you need to know about the event. (Image credit: ESA/CESAR–M.Castillo)

    The second total lunar eclipse of 2022 will turn the moon a reddish-copper color for 85 minutes on Nov. 8, 2022, though what you'll see during this safe naked-eye event will depend on your location on the planet.

    Often colloquially called a Blood Moon, a total lunar eclipse, happens as the full moon (in this case November's full Beaver Moon) moves into the deep umbral shadow of the Earth and receives only light first filtered by Earth's atmosphere, will be visible from North America and parts of South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

    A partial lunar eclipse will be visible from Iceland, parts of South America, south and central Asia and Russia. A penumbral lunar eclipse — when the moon is in the lighter penumbral shadow from our planet — will be visible from eastern Brazil and Argentina, northern Scandinavia and the Middle East. (snipped)

  4. Remember that the 8th starts at 12:01 and they are talking about 4 hours from now. The eclipse begins at 3:02 a.m. and it is SNOWING here! :cry:

    Blood moon will emerge in the early hours of Election Day

    The normally bright and glowing moon will appear an eerie red early Tuesday, in the last total lunar eclipse for the next three years. The so-called "Beaver Moon," as November's full moon is known, will reach its peak illumination at 6:02 a.m. EST, during the lunar eclipse.

    NASA said the total lunar eclipse — when the sun, Earth and moon align so that the moon goes into Earth's shadow — will occur on Nov. 8, Election Day. The eclipse will begin at 3:02 a.m. ET, and totality — when the moon is within the darkest part of Earth's shadow and appears a bright red, earning it the nickname of "blood moon" — will last from about 5:17 a.m. to 6:42 a.m. Eastern.

    The blood moon stage of the eclipse will be visible from North and Central America, Ecuador, Colombia and western areas of Venezuela. (snipped)

  5. The last 2 mornings have been quite intresting around here .
    Yesterday morning there was a launch of a rocket off the Virginia coast and I was able to see it from my front yard in North Carolina it was quite spectacular .
    This morning I took time to check out the lunar eclipse which was quite cool but for me not as impressive as the rocket launch !
