I think it starts a little earlier.

Lunar eclipses are not uncommon, but still a delight.

All this supermoon stuff is silly hype.

I wish they would have daytime lunar eclipses, much more convenient.

They do. I believe there's one in New Zealand this afternoon, about 3pm.

Daytime lunar eclipses are an impossibility if you think about it.

Or to be more exact, Daylight lunar eclipses are an impossibility.

It's 925pm here in Colombia and everyone is out looking at it. The missus won't look as she thinks she won't wake up in the morning. I reminded her it's 2015!

The moon is beginning to light up again. About a quarter has come back.

Probably the best lunar eclipse I have watched.

Outstanding.

Venus was also dazzling this morning.

It's been a good month for astronomy. I saw Saturn for the first time a couple of weeks back - rings clearly visible - through my cheapo spotting scope.

Wife was unimpressed by the supermoon ...But then even Niagra and the Pyramids of Egypt left her unmoved. Strange bint.

Let's hope house prices crash by 90% before the next one.

I was hoping that ten years ago when I saw younger colleagues taking on enormous debt.

After the late 80s/early 90s when I had seen a few close friends bankrupted, I am reluctant to have debt.

Anyway nice eclipse. Almost finished now.

Strange indeed!

My job required watching the eclipse

Ah. Make sure it went off as planned, that kind of thing?

Great. Your work deserves a big lunar tick.

Someone's got to do it.

Actually, larking about aside, yesterday evening I had an e-mail that a colleague and close friend I had about 20 years ago (and not spoken to since - different paths), had died yesterday. (Not looking for sympathy.) I bet they would have liked to watch the eclipse. Watching the eclipse is more important than working.
