Lunar eclipse tonight:
Skygazers await century's longest 'blood moon'
As the forecast thunderstorms have as yet to materialise and there are no signs of them appearing anytime today then perhaps we will get to see it. Unfortunately I will miss it as my medication knocks me out and I will probably be sleeping when it occurs.
Saw it two years ago, had to get up in the middle of the night to see it, almost half past three this shot.

Oh I was gonna say, I doubt I'll photo it this time as the atmosphere will be so hazy there won't be much detail in the shot.
I saw one in the last century and eek! I feel like a dinosaur saying that.
An aside: When I was at university I joined the astronomical society and one chilly night made it over to a dark vegetal location where the observatory was. We were invited to observe some galaxy cluster and my head was brimming with splendiferous visions. In fact, when I got my chance at the eyepiece, what it looked like was a slight smudge on the lens. That killed the excitement somewhat!
