Those of us on the Left Coast can see a total lunar eclipse tomorrow morning. This will last a long time, starting just before 2:00 am, becoming full just before 3:00, and staying full 'til around 4:20!
They announced it on the news here in the mid-west. It'll be appearing between 4 to just before 8 AM. Too bad I'll be asleep!

I have just this minute come in from watching the eclipse (it's 8:00pm here in Aust.).
It looked absolutely amazing, gradually darkening over and turning a bright blood red! Beautiful!
Darn... I was thinking it was to be between 12:45 and 2:00 A.M. Pacific Standard Time for my area of the globe. I gave up at 2:00 A.M. and never saw a thing.
The weatherman lied AGAIN!!!
"Years from now we want to go into the pub and tell about the Terrible Conflagration up at the Place, do we not?"
Still working mids, and was up for this breathtaking event. I've seen a couple of eclipses before, but none as incredible as this one. At one point, the moon looked like this glowing, irridescent-red orb, sitting in a brilliant-white saucer.
It was supposed to begin here at--get this--4:51 Eastern. Didn't have any problem remembering the time. BTW, there are some great photos on flickr.com.
