Check it out now.

I'm a nerd for posting that. On second thought, screw that. I should get some mad reputation points for this post.

I'd throw you some rep points, but i guess i already did. The lunar eclipse is cool. Pretty red right now.

I just came back in from taking some pictures of it. I guess I'm nerdy, too. :confused:

Thanks for the post! The eclipse is beautiful through binoculars.

I have a question for everyone...Do both hemispheres of the earth see the eclipse on consecutive days? Since we saw it tonight, did the other side of the globe see it last night or will they see it tomorrow night?

Very cool........

Dang, it is cold as shit out there. Very cool though.

I don't think the other hemisphere saw it yesterday or will see it tomorrow...the reports were that only the western hemisphere will see it.

The next lunar eclipse isn't until December 2010...so I hope you caught it.

FYI...The next total solar eclipse is coming up...August 1, 2008
