Tonight the full moon will turn a delightful shade of red and possibly turquoise, too. It’s a total lunar eclipse–the last one until 2010. Sky watchers in Europe, the Americas, parts of the Middle East, and Africa are favored for good views of the two-hour event.
I’ll be watching at 10:26 EST. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some good pictures. 😉

You may want to check your local library. Ours is having a lunar eclipse event. They are provided telescopes. We’re all sick, so we’ll have to miss it 🙁
How fun! I think it’ll be cloudy here – after 3 full days of clear skies, now it gets cloudy and starts raining again! LOL But I’ll check the news and see if we might get a glimpse.

The library event sounds like fun! We have a very tiny library in our little town, and there’s not anything like that going on in our area. We’re too rural.
I’m sorry to hear that your family is still under the weather. Hope you’ll be well again soon! 🙂
I hope you’ll be able to see it. Maybe the skies will clear up by then.:)
Thanks Mrs. C. I just might keep the children awake and let them watch!
Thank you so much for posting the links, Mrs. C. I knew it was happening, but I was not sure what time to look out for it.
Thanks for letting me know, I will be watching! (o:
