If interested there is going to be a total eclipse of the moon on Wednesday morning.


I received the following:



                            by Brian Webb
If the weather cooperates, early risers in the Southwest can enjoy a
total lunar eclipse on the morning of January 31.
The key times (in Pacific Time) for this event are as follows:
  03:48 Partial eclipse begins
  04:42 Totality begins
  05:30 Mid-eclipse
  06:08 Totality ends
  07:11 Partial eclipse ends

Experts predict that the usually normally gray moon will probably be bright orange in color during totality. To see the eclipse, you won't need any special equipment, the unaided eye will suffice. However, you will have a better view if you use binoculars or a small telescope.

It was pretty cool, although I only saw it from a little before six.

I was up at 3:30 and checked it every ten minutes and took fairly close up photos- and some even turned out OK.  It was GREAT !

Another great  day in the adventure of exploration and sight.
