Total Eclipse of the…Total Eclipse

Total Eclipse of the…Total Eclipse December 21, 2010

Due to significant cloud cover, the lunar eclipse early this morning was not visible in my area. But it is good to hear that other bloggers managed to see it: Chet Raymo saw it in the Bahamas, and Charles Halton shared a link to photos as well as thoughts on eclipses in ancient Babylonia and Israel. Steve Wiggins had an exam to give today and so couldn’t stay up.

Did you stay up to watch it?

To mark the occasion, here’s a video I shared before – a hilarious overly literal interpretation of the video for the song “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
