I just caught the very last of it. Unfortunately, I was not in the right part of the world last night.

August I think. I think they said on the news that there would be another in the wee hours of the morning here in NE US some time in August.It was cool. My astronomy loving son stood out in the driveway for 1/2 an hour watching.

In Atlantic Canada, we were able to view the lunar eclipse between 7:30pm - 8:00pm. It was a clear night as well and I was able to watch outside just for the reddish moon to show itself. Unlike a Solar eclipse, I didn't wanted to stand around to watch the entire sequence.

To cloudy and to cold. I'll catch the next one.

And to think the ancients thought this was an evil event, the end of the world and the sign of things to come. It is nothing more than a normal celestial event. I hope those who seen it, enjoyed the sight. It was too cloudy and cold here in the Buckeye State to witness one of God's most beautiful events..
