    If the sky is clear tonight at your house go outside and check out the lunar eclipse.

    During the eclipse the moon will be a dark reddish-orange color .... you can tell your kids it's the Great Pumpkin!

    More info HERE.

    Clouds here kinda screwed it up too... I saw most of it, but every few minutes a cloud would go by and the moon would disappear...

    I missed most of it cause it was happening on my drive home from work and some dumbass mofo was tailgating me during the only part of my drive that isn't thru the city. Every time I would try to look out the window and see the moon, I would just get blinded by this asshat's headlights /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Bring on the pics!!! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    i got to see the last one, i think it was this past summer or the one befor that. anyway i was in marfa texas, thats way west near mexico and it was awesome. no light pollution because there's an observatory in the area. only problem was the mexican fires and all the smoke they put into the atmosphere. i think that one was a full eclipse. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
