Super blood moon lunar eclipse happening right now!
I nearly missed it - don't forget to look up from your laptops and screens and look out the window folks - it's an amazing night out there! But I think it's Northern Hemisphere, dunno how some of you guys will fare globally in other parts!
And they are all saying different times, some say from 2.34 am GMT and some say an hour later 3.34am, right up till 6.35 or 7.35 GMT...anyone getting up early or staying up late will get it then. I'm sure there'll be some great pics tomorrow.
Back in 1999 I actually did miss a major total solar eclipse working hard on the computer, it was during the day and I peeked up from the screen for a second thinking hm it's a bit dark out there and back to work again...duh, crazy.
I can see the moon already with a dark shadow across it, apparently it will go black then red, last one for at least 10 years - let's report back on all the success and fun for the next one then! Meanwhile get your mitts off the keyboard and pull back those curtains anyone still up in the Northern Hemisphere...or who is up early
ps when I was in the forest earlier on it was dark but very bright with a full moon and I did not know about the eclipse till someone in Norway shared it on facebook but I did wonder what on earth was happening because I'd never seen so many deer on the move, travelling in herds in different parts of the forest - the animals are so much more in tune!
