Full moon lunar eclipse...

"Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things, and I am greatly indebted to it. Geophysical evidence reveals the power of the stars and the planets in relation to the terrestrial. In turn, astrology reinforces this power to some extent. This is why astrology is like a life-giving elixir to mankind." ~Albert Einstein

There's a full moon in Sagittarius tonight but that's not all... there's going to be a lunar eclipse as well, one which will be the longest and deepest total eclipse in a decade. Fabulousness...

Google, who has my deep love because of their doodles, has done a total lunar eclipse doodle on their page to allow persons that can't view it to keep track of it. Google's Youtube channel also had a live feed of the eclipse which as I type this I realise may have already passed. Meep. Am not quite sure what to do with this blog post now as my intent was to tell you, dear reader, to keep your eyes on the skies... ah well... it's still a great day and will be a great night for moon-watching.


Edited to add (4.10 pm):
It's still going on! Mid-way through... hopefully I'll see it... :)

Edited again (8.02 pm):
So apparently we're not in the zone to view the eclipse... *grump* and even if we were in the zone - it's been raining all day... cloud coverage to the extreme... ah well.. there's supposed to be one viewable by us in 2018... Yay?
