lunar eclipses aren’t all that amazing, sort of like full moon to new to full in 3 hoursJan 20, 2019 at 9:32 pm #3574031Steofan MBPL Member

Gerald Hawkins along with Fred Hoyle (the whole Stonehenge Decoded cycle, early 1960’s) were able to associate the 56 Aubrey Holes at Stonehenge with the cycle of Lunar Eclipses.
Pretty amazing for a stack of rocks and an elliptical pattern of holes in the ground from 2500 BC when you look at what the rest of the world was thinking at that time.Jan 20, 2019 at 10:23 pm #3574043David ThomasBPL Member
@davidinkenaiLocale: North Woods. Far North.
Man, talk about an eclipse made for the New World:
I’ll be on the road to Denali tonight so there’s a chance of seeing the Northern Lights during the hour of totality – a dark red moon and green aurora.Jan 20, 2019 at 10:54 pm #3574050Greg MihalikBPL Member

I’m watching totality right now, and it’s quite a sight. They call it a total eclipse of the Super Red Wolf Moon, which is rather uncommon. Fun stuff, just before my bedtime.
edit: totality here in CO is from 9:41 PM to 10:41 PM. We have clear skies in Boulder tonight.Jan 21, 2019 at 6:39 am #3574141Dale WambaughBPL Member

Clear view here in Seattle about 9:00. Thanks for the reminder!Jan 21, 2019 at 2:23 pm #3574169
A few minutes before totality I could see it through the clouds.
Totality – totally obscured
After – totally clear. Nice full moon. Super moon means it’s a little closer, so it’s a little bigger and brighter
That’s just what the weather report said it would doJan 21, 2019 at 2:56 pm #3574175
It was almost as much fun to see the ‘uneclipsed’ full moon set over the continental divide early this morning before dawn. So big, so bright, and it seemed to move rather fast…
I love this stuff.Jan 21, 2019 at 3:06 pm #3574176Ken ThompsonBPL Member

“Rained out in Chico.”
Title of some pop/folk song? : )Jan 21, 2019 at 6:54 pm #3574241
The group that comes to mind is Creedence Clearwater Revival. First they sing “Who’ll Stop the Rain?”, which they follow up with “Bad Moon Rising.”Jan 21, 2019 at 7:12 pm #3574250W I S N E R !BPL Member
Fishing off the pier with my son and a friend with the moon in full view throughout the whole affair. Pretty cool watching the transition, it was a pretty night. Was hoping that a total eclipse of the Super Blood Wolf Moon would be a good omen to catch The Big One but it didn’t materialize.Jan 21, 2019 at 7:53 pm #3574269
I was thinking me and Bobbie McGee or some Eagles song or something… The Stones maybe…
That would have been a nice view Craig
