A Lunar Eclipse Coming To Berkeley!
There's a lunar eclipse coming soon... though it was rainy today!
I took this beautiful copper red moon eclipse when I lived in a beautiful home on Buena Vista Way in the Berkeley Hills. The eclipse was sometime between 1975 and 1977, and as best I can recall (actually, google) it was 18 Nov 1975.
Here's the Lunar Eclipse Wikipedia entry
Andrew Fraknoi, my favorite Astronomy educator (and also, along with me, a Bronx Science Grad of 1966) gives his usual sage advice "Because it will begin so early in the evening, the moon will be just rising in the east, so when looking eastward it's best to choose a high vantage point lest hills or tall buildings obscure the rising moon entirely" in today's San Francisco Chronicle article "Total lunar eclipse promises to be colorful"
And if you look carefully at the photo above, you can see Baby T's (short for Baby Terrorist) eclipse of this morning's light drizzle. She was sitting on the deck when a light mist came down on the deck... and her. Then she strolled away.. but her "rain shadow" briefly remained.
