Total Eclipse

Having mentioned the Moon earlier today, I should point out that there will be a total lunar eclipse on 28th October. It will occur from midnight onwards as the Moon moves into the shadow cast by the Earth. Of course some people will be on the wrong side of the Earth to see it but they can always watch a live webcast of the event. Unfortunately here in Manchester, although we should be well placed to see the eclipse, we have to rely on the weather. If it conspires against us we will have to wait until 2007 to see the next one.
