There is a total lunar eplicse tonight if you guys are interested in that. I think it's visible starting at 10:00pm eastern and 7 pacific. Weather is good here so no worries.

Im a bit of a space nut so I like things like this.

I was really looking forward to this but, alas, it was cloudy last night. Last lunar eclipse until December 2010.

At least the reason it was cloudy was because an ice storm is coming through, putting today and tomorrow's classes at risk...

PS: As I was explaining the basics of a lunar eclipse to my 6th grade (math) class, one of my students says:

"Now wait a second. You're telling me the earth goes around the sun and not the other way around?"

My response:
"Welcome to the 16th century!"

Very cloudy in VA last night, only caught glimpses of it.
