To be upset that I won't see the lunar eclipse tonight because of the pissing rainclouds?

I'm a bit of a geek. Love astronomy.

Will you have more in common than me with Professor Cox, by seeing the eclipse?

Will it brighten up???!! Will Brian Cox, me and the moon find lunar communion?

Yanbu.

It always seem to cloud over.

apparently it will be better in the north. I couldn't be any further south unless I popped over to the IOW

It's cloudy here but hopefully will clear so will pop out at 10 to see if we can see smile

Were in Devon so unsure of visibility

Not raining here now, just very cloudy so doubt I will get to see it.

Longest one in 11years as well.

I wanted to see it also but it is very miserable and cloudy here (north west).

I'm still holding out hope that the clouds naff off before it gets dark! I've never seen a red moon.

Me neither * friedrice* DD is staying up til 10 to catch it too and she's excited

What time? Although chances of seeing it up here in the north are slim due to torrential rain!

Get up all you Melbourne MNers. The eclipse is just beginning and the sky is cloudless.

As it also bloody chilly, Uggs, fluffy socks and all warm bed gear are needed.grin

Says between 10 and 11

GingerWrath Wed 15-Jun-11 19:32:57

Ooh, I see a break in the clouds! (heads off to find binos)

Watching it under clear African skies.

LineRunner Wed 15-Jun-11 23:04:30

Didn't see it.

Sigh.

Me neither, too cloudy sad
