August 28th eclipse animation

The strange thing about having a blog these days is that occasionally I am sent astronomy-related stuff from people I have never met. This can be pretty cool. In my inbox this morning I found an email from the University of Southern California telling me about an animation that Professor Edward Rhodes had made of the recent lunar eclipse from Mount Wilson Observatory. The animation was made from still images of the eclipse taken during a field-trip for the 19 undergraduate students in his Astronomy 400 class. Apparently he will take his Astronomy 100 class to see the February 20th 2008 eclipse. I think it is a pretty good way to inspire a class about the Universe.
