TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE IN WINNIPEG: ENTRY 5:
Molly is presently defrosting from being outside for many minutes watching the eclipse during the time of mid-totality. This one looks like a definite L2 to bothy me and the wife. Please see previous posts on this subject for reporting your own observations to either Sky and Telescope Magazine or to Dr. richard keen. The only problem I have with assigning a level to the eclipse is the asymetry to the brighter regions of the Moon. So far the right hand side is considerably brighter than the left. The colour is obvious, and considerably darker than what I have heard predicted on the radio. Also, as a correction to what I have posted here before Saturn is considerably below the Moon in the sky. At totality it was quite bright. Regulus almost directly above the Moon, and only a little bit to the right. I don't know what was wrong with the references that I posted before. As I end this blog it is about 6 minutes to the end of totality. I'll be out there observing again at that time, and I'll try to get some photos, though I have little faith in the quality nof my camera.
