Don't Forget the Total Lunar Eclipse this Thursday Morning (16 June).

I'm getting ready for tomorrow mornings* total lunar eclipse. Despite less than encouraging cloud predictions from SkippySky, I've got the spare batteries for the telescopes time drive, and I'm charging up the camera batteries, getting all my warm woollies (beanie, gloves, scarf etc.) ready and going out anyway.

Even if it is cloudy, the sight of the eclipsed Moon playing peek-a-boo in the clouds will be marvelous, and the ash from the Chilean volcano that is grounding planes may change the colour of the eclipsed Moon.

Just in case the eclipse is completely clouded out there are webcasts here and here.

*Wednesday night (15th) if you live in India, Africa or Europe, details and timings here.
