How do GMT and EST relate, Toothy? I can never remember what 2200 GMT means to me in E. TN ... is that 10PM est?

Hmmm I think you are onto something, but then again, according to Tom Oliver, the CPRE's head of rural policy, the sky is smeared with an ugly orange glow from light pollution spoiling so many people's views of the heavens.

Beware the penumbra!

It's got these emanations lurking around in it that have bedeviled us for thirty years.

Partial phase of eclipse has just started. Left side of moon darkening up. Got lucky here, been cloudy for days, just cleared up this evening.

Are you in Lake Placid and it has started there? Here in Cambridge - the People's Republik - it is awesome.

Near Lake Placid. I can literally just look out my window. I will have full 10-minute interval pictures around 8:30 or so when it is completed.

Saw it starting on my way home tonight. At first I thought it was a cloud.

Very neat!

On Cape Cod-clear night. It is awesome. A nice chunk out of the moon's left hand side, and there is a visual effect of the moon splitting into three moons on the right.
