Lunar eclipses are always 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after a solar eclipse--it's the geometry of it. The same orbit that puts the moon exactly where the earth is between it and the sun is the same orbit that puts it between us and the sun, either before or after. There was a partial solar eclipse in Asia on Jan 5/6.

Yeah, well, not planning on going there, either...but solar and lunar eclipses are always paired.

Got the wee little telescope ready - crystal clear here as well.

Not sure why this came to mind...

the moon is about 2/3rds obscured just now. if you get the chance, step outside and have a look.

sorta looks that way, yes. i can see how this would have frightened people before we had science to explain things. one of the few certainties of the dark of night is the full moon, regular as clockwork, and then this. :eek:
