    It is awfully cloudy right now, provided things clear up I am going to check it out.

    Yup, probably gonna watch the moon a little bit, provided that it’s getting clearer this evening.

    Sorry, to busy to summon the elder gods/cosmic horrors from beyond the veil and end the age of man.

    Stars and moon finally in the right position you know.

    But I guess I could look after the ritual is completed and the virgins are sacrificed.

    Would be nice to watch but I hate getting only half a show.

    I've seen solar eclipses before, but not a lunar one. A damn shame since at the time of this one my area was cloudy at night. I was even awake at that time anyway without having to stay up just for it.

    Sincerely,
    The Vault Dweller

    Considering that the entire British Isles is covered in cloud I reckon no one around here saw it.

    Miſſed it. It was very cloudy around here.
    But fortunately, lunar eclipſes happen rather often. The next one is on 15.6.2011.

    I'm waiting until we get a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse at the same time.

    Well Pluto isn't a planet anymore...


    UNESCO probably won't give a damn if we towed Pluto and Charon here.
