View Full Version : Astronomy Lunar Eclipse

3rd March 2007, 20:11
People living in Europe should keep an eye out for the Lunar Eclipse that's occurring tonight between approx quarter-to-eleven and midnight.

The moon will be totally hidden from the sun behind the earth resulting in it not reflecting the direct light of the sun, but instead only light that travelled through the earth's atmosphere resulting in it turning a red shade.

We couldn't see it from here anyway, I think best place to be was in Italy.

I had a quick look outside when it was going on, and the sky was completely overcast here. So no luck. :(

I saw it very well from here, but almost fell out of the upstairs window in the process.

Forgot to watch.
Been in the pub watching the match in the afternoon.
Drinking wine with the missus in the evening.
Probably didn't help my powers of recall.
