Lunar Eclipse Oct 8th...

    Another of Nature's wonders.

    This total lunar eclipse will occur this Wednesday October 8, 2014. It will be visible from North America, parts of Australia, China and Japan. Parts of South Asia, and Eastern Europe will see a partial eclipse. The penumbral phase of the eclipse will begin at 8:17 A.M. (08:17) *UTC on October 8, 2014 and the eclipse will end at 1:32 P.M. (13:32) UTC the same day. The moon will be totally eclipsed (totality) for about 58 minutes.

    * UTC - Co-ordinated Universal Time

    This will also be a good time to see the Draconid meteor shower, which is expected to peak on October 8-9, 2014.


    I was blessed to see a full eclipse of the moon a few summers back - was in total awe - the best that I have ever seen in my life; breath taking and soul moving.

    I can wait...I've got a whole lot of planning to do for next year. In the meantime I'm hoping to get away more often and camp in the winter months when the snow is on the ground.

    It is simply fabulous to be out camping at the time of any eclipse. There are no city buildings or light to get in the way of the show. But that has only happened on a few occasions. I suppose I could get away in April to see the lunar eclipse because it is a weekend.

    Thanks for the heads up @Northern Dancer, I didn't have time to post but I did get a glimpse of part of the eclipse which can sometimes be difficult in the city. I have actually seen quite a few lunar eclipses but I have never seen a solar eclipse.

    is like the moon reflected on the water.
    The moon does not get wet,
    nor is the water broken.
    Although its light is wide and great,
    the moon is reflected
    even in a puddle an inch wide.
    The whole moon and the entire sky
    are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.
