They just said on the evening news that there will be a "Blood Moon Lunar eclipse" on Sunday night. The next one won't be until 2033. That makes it probably the last that I will see.

We should all take a little time to look at the stars and planets once in awhile. I find it tends to put our world in perspective. Its also relaxing. Good Luck, Rick

Its the last of 4 blood moons over the last 2 yrs. Many Christians believe this is the 4 blood moons described in scripture leading into Revelation coming to pass.
If true, no none will see the next one.
I live in the "fair visibilty" area.

This is the first I've heard of this looks like I'll be watching the sky the next few nights. Star gazing is really relaxing

Starts at 7:30 pm, maxxed out at 9:47, ends at midnight, CST. Minnesota is supposed to be 68-72 degrees at that time, clear, with a slight breeze out of the south.

% chance of bonfire is at 100.

Watched the first half of it with Mom, Ryan and Loran around a campfire up at the farm.
The clouds came in about then, so we left for home at 10ish

The moon was eclipsed all night here with clouds.  Never saw a thing.  Ah well, maybe next time.
