Should be visible over North America as the moon sets early Saturday morning before dawn, and over Asia and Australia (they'll get the best views) as it rises Saturday evening. Anybody going to watch?
Just kidding about the stoned part. I saw the full moon a few times when I woke up during the night but didn't get up for the eclipse. I've seen two total lunar eclipses over the years, but that's no excuse not to still feel the wonder of it when it happens...
What amazes me, though, is how the moon is precisely the right size and distance from the earth to JUST block the image of the sun sometimes for a total solar eclipse, and sometimes show just a ring of sun around the moon when an annular solar eclipse occurs (I saw one of those too, back in 1994).
^^^I wonder when weathermen will catch onto the fact that an interesting astronomical event has a high probability of causing cloudy weather?
I've lucked out sometimes, though. I've seen some cool solar and lunar eclipses, as well as a few comets and meteors. (Granted, comets usually hang around for a few days at least, so bad weather isn't such a problem seeing them).
Isn't a meteor shower coming up within a month? (Not that I want any of us to get frostbite watching a few flaming space rocks...)
