    Lunar Eclipse tonight

    Ok braniacs, what time do I need to go out to look at this thing if I live in Ames?

    It's cold out and I don't want to miss too much of the Bears/Vikings game.

    Depends on how much you like astronomical events. This is the first total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice since 1638. There won't be another visible in N. America total eclipse until 2014.

    Re: Lunar Eclipse tonight

    Sounds like channel 13 is saying the clouds are rolling in and is probably going to affect the ability to see the eclipse.

    Re: Lunar Eclipse tonight

    Am I the only one to see it tonite? I wish my camera wasn't packed away for my move or I would have had pics. The clouds broke up enough for me to see it. Wasn't total yet but nonetheless worth it for a nerd like myself.

    Re: Lunar Eclipse tonight

    There is another lunar eclipse June 15 2011. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. At least it should be warm enough to sit outside and relax.

    I think around 2060, but I'm not for sure.
