    is anyone watching the lunar eclipse tonight? this is the first one that i'v actually seen or cared to see, and it's pretty cool.
    you can see the diameter of the earth in comparison to the moon
    [strike]i'll post a video that i just took of it once youtube is back up[/strike]
    scratch that... my camera isn't getting it :(
    This is the best my 5 MP camera can do:

    Yeah my Mom pointed it out to me when I was taking out the garbage earlier.
    It does look pretty neat, I don't remember seeing one before.

    Yeah I'm watching it I'm getting bundled up at the moment. It's pretty cold out, and I had my fair share of cold today.

    It was beautifully clear here in alberta and i caught most of it. no camera to handy to snap a shot of it, but it was really clear. i dont think its quite done yet, but its passed the best, full rededness part. i like to catch these, cuz they are so scarce and far inbetween and it is such a great sight. i dont wanna feel like i missed out =)

    Edit: oh and there is a star or 2 that you are able to make out that at any other time your cant cuz the moon is too bright. i think that part is cool too.

    Very cool! It popped through the cloud cover a few times - also saw a shooting star right over the moon. My tripod is a little goofed up (ordering a new one soon), so it doesn't have the stability I needed, especially with a low light pic. Snapped a few decent ones though, post 'em in a bit.
