Cool Eclipse of the moon - right now!

Hi folks,
For a neat sight go and take a look at the moon tonight (Feb 20th). A total eclipse has begun. Should be at its best in about an hour 10pm EST (full eclipse, makes it look red). Any talented photographers out there??

Way too cold here to go out and watch (-30C) but I'm so lucky to have a nice view of the moon from my living room picture window, right beside my computer, how nice

If you're not so lucky to have a ring side view, grab your winter woolies and a cup of hot something and wander out for a look... don't forget to take your puppers with you (they make good foot warmers ) or kitties (good hand warmers )

Next one isn't till Dec 2010.

ok so do you think if I go out on my patio and dance naked under the moon , this would bring me money ? 6/49 draw is tonight and I'm SURE nobody will think about getting naked outside and dance.

If you REALLY aren't into going outside or even looking out the window, there are a couple of web pages that broadcast things like this live.... www.spaceweather.com is one of them, though I can't get the page to load right now, probably too much traffic.

Don't forget to keep checking on that ol' moon of ours, it just gets better and better!

I soooooooo wish I had a telescope... I'm fascinated by the "shadowy" part of the moon during an eclipse, but it's hard to see without a tele
