Just wanted to remind all you east coast types that there’s a lunar eclipse happening tonight (should be starting right about now…) We won’t be able to see it at all on the left coast, so I wanna see some pictures dammit!
Edit: Crap! It’s Saturday night, not tonight I guess… I’m an idiot.March 3, 2007 at 2:52 am #8837March 3, 2007 at 3:21 am #8838
I live in Minnesota so the moon will just be rising as it leaves total eclipse…. I’m hoping the clouds clear up enough that I can actually see it, we’ve been getting snow for the last week or so. Minnesota’s not exactly the best place for astrophotography. =(March 3, 2007 at 3:35 am #8839linguineParticipant
If the eclipse had been this evening I couldve photographed it because there was a clear sky out here today, unfortunately theyre calling for clouds and rain so any lunar eclipse shots that I take may not be very lunary.March 3, 2007 at 6:20 pm #8840powerplantgirlParticipant
Well I am gonna take my chances tonight, although I am in Colorado, so apparently my view will suck.
So here’s to freezing your buns off for that cool shot!March 3, 2007 at 11:02 pm #8841
It’s going on right now, if you’re on the east coast.

Behold the power of Farktography..or something 😛
Maybe I can just subtract 2 hours from yours Zeke?March 4, 2007 at 1:03 am #8843
For the times of the eclipse, yes, for the times the moon will rise in your area, kinda? The moon may be rising at 5:50pmEST in New York, but not until 6:30EST in say, Kentucky. It all depends on where in the time zone you are. It will be within an hour, though. I pulled the time for LA for millera9, and the moon will be rising at 5:50pmPST there, which means they’ll just catch the tail end of it. Check weather.com or something for the moonrise time in your area?March 4, 2007 at 1:10 am #8844March 4, 2007 at 4:20 am #8845
I was shooting some TV tonight so I couldn’t see. It was probably too cloudy anyway.March 4, 2007 at 8:03 am #8846staplermofoParticipant

You’re an Elvis impersonator?March 4, 2007 at 10:39 am #8847

I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean, but I meant that I’m a television cameraman and I was working tonight, which is why I missed the chance to photograph the eclipse.March 4, 2007 at 11:13 am #8848staplermofoParticipant

Elvis famously shot his TV. I can’t resist a pun.March 4, 2007 at 1:33 pm #8849
Ooooooh. I’m not old enough to remember that.March 4, 2007 at 5:49 pm #8850CuriousParticipant
hell i’m old enough to remember when JFK died.
now get off my lawn.
i didn’t bother looking for the eclipse. it wasn’t supposed to be real good here and they said the best part would be blocked by the trees to my east.
well that’s not exactly how it was phrased. i like my trees but they do make looking at the horizon a bit difficult.
