Did anyone living in Europe saw the moon eclipse last night?
visibility in Utrecht and surroudings (centre of netherlands) were pretty good, although sometimes there were some clouds.
A pink/orange moon for over one hour full eclipse. The total amount of time from the first 'bite' to full moon again, was about 3,5 hours, which is really long.
Ok, so far my enthusiasm about this topic

Can't blame you, it's not as spectacular as a total sun eclipse. I have been to the one in europe in 98 i guess it was, in Laon in France. But unfortunately many clouds on that summer day. But the darkness itself was an experience already

From the BBC; the next lunar eclipse over western Europe will take place on 21 February 2008, but late in the night between 0300 GMT and 0400 GMT. And though eastern Australia, Alaska and New Zealand missed out on this total lunar eclipse, they will be able to see the next one, due to take place on 28 August.

Great news!!! I will count down from today

Glad that you are excited about it Wouter..;)
Next sun eclipse will be summer 2008 in Russia/Mongolia/China.....bit sad, because that means that it will be very crowded in some places, especially Novosibirsk along the transsib railway.

We were suppose to be able to see it from our location but alas... We had heavy cloud cover and only saw the clouds... We love eclipses and auroras... For those who were able to se it - I hope it was breathtaking and that you enjoyed it! ;)

It's going to be a total eclipse on 1st August...

If everything goes according to plan I will be in Mongolia next summer - armed with film equipment.
