Lunar eclipse

On Wednesday at 21:25 there is a chance to see the lunar eclipse, (no its not a shiny vampire movie) the type where the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks its light.

It is the last one to be seen in the UK intill 2042 so worth a few minutes to take a look . . . if you can actually see the moon that is! Good old British weather has forecast rain rain and more rain! It will probably too cloudy to see this interesting phenomenon but fear not; the age of digital astronomy is upon us! Head over to where there will be a live feed from satellites of the eclipse.
