Last week a colleague who, shall we say, has form for forwarding dodgy emails, sent me one claiming Mars and the Moon would be aligned on Monday morning at 12:30am. Turns out to be a hoax. Happily I didn’t stay/get up specially to watch. Neither did anybody else, apparently (or if they are, they’re not admitting it).
But tonight’s full lunar eclipse isn’t a hoax, and from Melbourne it’s at a much more civilised time, in the early evening. I think I’ll set up the camera on a tripod and keep an eye on it with the kids through the evening.
Well, if cloud doesn’t block it.
