    I've been waiting for this since I heard about it. I even had my telescope ready and its freakin' cloudy here. Sucks to be me. So who ever can see it, enjoy it.

    ^Sweet pics!!!

    I had read that it would rise too late in the Pacific time zone, so I didn't mention it in the title - sorry about that.

    Just came back from the outside. It was ass freezing cold but worth the look.

    It's the last lunar eclipse until 2010.

    Oh it's also the Lantern Festival in China/Taiwan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lantern_Festival

    Surprising how the Lantern Festival is about the full moon and today we get that and an eclipse.

    Its crystal clear here, neat stuff.

    Dr. Ruth over at IUS has a cool series of pictures of a lunar eclipse over the IUS lobster claw (its a sculpture that looks like a giant lobster claw)
