I figured there was going to be a big celebration here tonight. The first time in 372 years a Total Lunar Eclipse has happened during the Winter Solstice.

Hi Donn:
I just wanted to wish you Happy Holidays. It's been awhile, my old WS friend!

Toga! Toga!....may in reality be towel! towel! for those of us in the PNW

Makes you wonder what magic the lunar eclipse will have on seeds from hybrids sown tonight.


 o
RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

Ewwwww I was just reading and there is also going to be a meteor shower (which that happens every year) and they say that since there is going to be a lunar eclipse we may be able to see it pretty good. Usually there is a full moon and the moon distracts from the shower. So this year is even more special. I am extra giddy now!!

RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

Unfortunately, even if I could stay awake long enough to watch it, our forecast for tonight calls for cloudy skies and snow. Go figure.

Cloudy skies and snow flurries here in Western MA.

It's just starting to snow here now, changing to freezing rain thru the night. Cloudy, no moon visible.

Driving will be fun tomorrow, too.

Well bummer...it's cloudy with light snow here too. For those with clear skies, sounds like an interesting sky tonight!


 o
RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

I'm going to check it out! It's COLD!!!!

RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

There is a HUGE halo around the moon. Just incredible. If the halo was a hulahoop and the moon a shooter-marble, you could imagine the enormous size of the halo.

Trudi,
I'm so jealous! I set my alarm so I could get up to watch with my 13 year-old daughter. Clouds. We can't even tell what part of the sky the moon might be in. Well, back to bed. Maybe I'll get some wintersowing in later today. My mom is driving over to spend a day or two with my kids while they're on holiday break and I'm still working. I'll plant some stuff for her to take home for her garden. I I love this time of year! And I promised myself I'd set a personal record. I've been doing this for about 7 years and I think I'll need to do 400+. Yeah!

Martha, I took a picture of the halo ;-)

400? I get overwhelmed by 80, sigh. I haven't done a 'big sow' in a few years. Hmmm. Tempting. I do need part shade perennials.

RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

Snow had stopped but clouds remained. Bummer.


 o
RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

I fell asleep in my recliner at about 1AM. Missed the whole durned show.


 o
RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

I saw the beginning -- didn't stay up for the rest. Oh well apparently the wait is about 90 years for the next time.

At -18C I was dressed. :)


 o
Missed it?

For those who missed it.

Here is a link that might be useful: 2010 Solstice Lunar Eclipse

RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

I wasn't dressed, well, I wasn't dressed adequately. Flannel jammie bottoms and a thin sleep-top. However, as it was so late and no one was looking (closely) I did get nekkid in the shower while the moon shone through the bathroom window.

RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

It was hard to see the eclipse here in Atlanta...through my eyelids.
Thankfully technology allows me to catch up with our night sky, neighbors of ours gathered to watch with telescopes and filmed for us who decided to sleep through it!
No WS for me today. I'm waiting for the next set of seeds to come my way from Canada.
Two other fave seed companies have not published catalogs yet (nor are taking orders for 2011...they need to wake up and smell the winter sowing ;)


 o
RE: Everybody got their clothes on?

I went to bed. Looked too cloudy to see anything anyway. We got an inch or two of fresh snow overnight. Really looks like winter. And it has stayed cloudy, dreary, foggy, drizzly all day.

Have been running around all day- 2 groceries, 2 bakeries. My son arrives tomorrow and I was stocking up on all of his favorites.

I do have seeds orders on the way from Stokes and Swallowtail.

I couldn't even find the moon last night! But the sky turned an eerie navy blue color ........
