    The Lunar eclipse this Friday is due to be one of the longest possible. I'll be watching it, like the last one, so what are your plans?

    What time does it start?

    If it is visible and for once we may have clear skies, it would be good to actually see one without the British weather deciding to prevent it.

    Plans -- looks like a miss for me ... but that's ok, there'll be others.

    I was able to see the solar eclipse last August, as I only live about 20 miles north of the path of totality, and I'm in the path for totality in 2024

    From Space.com
    In Europe, observers will be in a similar situation. Londoners will see the moon rise at 8:51 p.m. local time, when the moon will already be in shadow, with the maximum eclipse occurring at 9:21 p.m. The moon will emerge from the umbra at 11:19 p.m.

    Something to look forward, or maybe upwards to.

    I was going to try and watch it, but it starts at 8:30 p.m. I'm not sure the sun will have set by then.

    Sun not down, moon not up. Britain doesn't get it until about 10 to 9, after totality. If you get a good photo, do share.

    If I can see it out of the window like most of the country, yeah.

    So, we have gorgeous hot weather for weeks with beautiful clear blue skies.

    One Lunar Eclipse and its clouds and thunderstorms all over.

    Gah!! :mad: :((
