Last chance 'til 2007...

... for you to see a total lunar eclipse! Mr. Eclipse has a nice primer on lunar eclipses (along with some pretty pictures).

Go outside tonight around 8:14 (Central Time) to see the moon start to disappear. By 9:23 p.m., the eclipse should be total.

IF there aren't a gazillion clouds, that is.

Lots more Chicago specific info on the eclipse here.

(p.s. For the record, for those of my friends who live to mock me at the slightest provocation, I have loved lunar eclipses since my father woke us up in the middle of the night back in 1982 and told us a story about a dragon eating the moon. The fact that I love Science Boy is just coincidental. :-)
