    Default Lunar Eclipse Tommrow

    Well, according the BBC there will be a partial lunar eclipse tomorrow. Luckily, we are right around the edge of possible viewing angles, so we'll be able to see it.

    It will be about 54% (peak) covered at around 7pm our time.

    I, for one, have never seen an eclipse, so I'll be out on the roof with una fria. It would be neat to get a photo of el monumento with the moon in the background. I'll have to find my camera. Hope it's not cloudy!

    P.s. Tomorrow is also when Ghana Vs. USA will happen. This obviously a sign from the gods that the US will win. I only say this based on the obvious fact that the moon goddess Luna hates Ghana and thus won't be eclipsing any of Africa tomorrow.

    You do realise that that octopus is an expat? It was born in UK now lives in Germany.

    we are under sunny skies all day long.
    MoonRise her 7:35PM tonight
