Last night's lunar eclipse 
Thursday, February 21st, 2008 | 10:27 am [astronomy]
Bitching about the American Free Press isn't the only thing on my mind today. There was a total lunar eclipse last night, always a nice thing to see, a natural wonder.  Lunar eclipses are far more common and easy to see than solar ones, but that doesn't make them any less amazing.  Below is a shot I filched from Wikipedia of the eclipse, as viewed from Washington, D.C.  Check out how the Moon looks when it's completely covered by the Earth's shadow:

Read it and weep, Flat Earth Society!  That's our shadow turning the Moon red!

I also found this excellent website from the Netherlands, with photos of all phases of the eclipse as seen from over there, plus links to a series of screengrabs from an Argentinian webcast of the eclipse, and a very cool artist's rendition of what the eclipse looks like from the Moon's vantage point.  Go check it out.
