Total eclipse of the Moon
There’s a total eclipse of the moon tonight, well tomorrow morning really, the last until December 2010. So if you’re feeling a little insomniac at 3.00am, get up make a cup of hot rooibos tea and look out of the window or go out onto the balcony or garden. The last few nights have been very clear so there’s a good chance of great views of the total lunar eclipse.
The previous lunar eclipse visible from the UK was on March 3rd 2007, at a more civilised time in the evening.
