The fall lunar eclipse is on Saturday. If you want to track when it will be for you… try this website… http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/LunarEclipse.html

The last eclipse was hard for me to see due to clouds. Right now all is supposed to be well. *CROSSES FINGERS* Now I have a great telescope so hopefully the eclipse will be even cooler!! πŸ™‚ I’m very excited. On Wed I’m going to a class at the store about moon viewing and photogrpahing. Hopefully I’ll learn some nifty new tips!! Just in time for the eclipse! I’m so anxious! I can’t wait for Wed!

I’m having an eclipse party. Feel free to come over. Check out the telescope. Watch the eclipse. Party at my house unless I can get someplace in the country to free up. I provide the telescope and the party space… you guys provide the food and drinks! πŸ™‚ HEHE

Yes, I will post about it.
Yes, I will try to take pictures.
Yes, I will post pictures ASAP.
Yes, you may come to my party… just bring something good to eat and drink! πŸ™‚ Hey, we could fire up the grill!

Wish I had those filters… hehe…

Maybe after the eclipse, or the main part of the eclipse we can check out some other stuff. Speaking of which I might take it out tonight and try to do some viewings… Not sure what… I’d like to see some neat stuff though! πŸ™‚
