Sky shenanigans
Everyone see the gorgeous lunar eclipse tonight? If not, praeteritio has posted some photos of it (hope it's okay to link these Wei, they were too gorgeous not to!).

It seems that any time anything interesting in the night sky happens in our part of the world, bad weather ruins it (or light pollution- the disadvantage of living in a city ;p). But not so tonight! It was more or less clear for the whole eclipse, so we got a glimpse of the moon turning a deep crimson. All very impressive.

(Why do I not have an icon for my geek love of astronomy? Must fix this at some point.)

Ah, man, those are lovely! I went to bed around 12:30 last night and I remember thinking to myself "Wow, it's a really beautiful night outside, no clouds and a full moon...huh, this moonlight's really bright. That's interesting."

But I totally didn't know a lunar eclipse was going to happen! I would've gotten up early if I had.

Thanks for posting the link!

Wasn't it beautiful? I was lucky enough to see the other eclipse in March, up in the arctic circle earlier this year.

I'm glad you liked the photos. And of course it's ok to post a link!
