i shall be making sure i'm up and about for this.
I got all excited.
until someone mentioned it in that thread! :D
I'll be driving to Luton at the time. I'll probably crash when the moonlight fails me.
it was lovely. we were stood on green street in oxford, well walking back to the car, and people were looking up, and i suddenly remembered it, and then i looked up and it was coming on, and then we stood and then some little drunk kids got excited about us looking up and they did too, before long there were about 30 of us lookinf up and then they got bored.
I've seen a massive moon but not a blood red one.
as the moon is so small it is often inline with the earth during full moon, so as it passes it gets in earths shaddow
it's apparently up to three times a year.
and makes it seem larger than it is because it compares it to nearby objects. It looks small in photos, though, which is irritating.
you beat me to it
and a new moon, are they not both the earths shadow, this has always intrigued me just not enough to actually find out
is when the moon suddenly spins out of orbit and off into the solar system, and is replaced by another one.
