Saturday-> Blood Moon:Total Lunar Eclipse

Blood Moon: Shortest Total Lunar Eclipse of the Century Rises Saturday

Early-rising observers all over the United States should be able to see at least the partial phases of the April 4 lunar eclipse just before the sun rises, if weather permits. People on the West Coast will have the chance to see the moon turn an eerie shade of red during totality, which should begin at about 7:58 a.m. EDT (1158 GMT, 4:58 a.m. PDT). NASA this week unveiled a video detailing the total lunar eclipse, and dubbed the event the shortest lunar eclipse of the century in an announcement on Monday (March 30) in detail.

I read "Blood Moon" and I think of this:

Blood Moon (Ninth Edition) - Gatherer - Magic: The Gathering

Blood Moon was such a good way for cheapo red decks filled with lightning bolts and goblins to fight against superpower multi-colored decks with all the Mana Drains, moxes, and dual lands.

I won't be going out to see it. It coincides with this years Night of the Devil Squirrel. No one in their right mind would venture out on this night.

Sept 2015 lunar eclipse

Well, here in Jonesboro GA at 9.34 PM Sunday Sept 27 the moon is invisible because of cloud cover. Ratz! All is in readiness just in case the clouds clear. Not too likely.

Last year I had "equipment failure," read I screwed up! At least there is a total solar coming up in 2017, August 21. I'll have to gather gear for that.
