Easterners get the show

Tomorrow (Saturday) evening there's a lunar eclipse. We'll be too late for it out here, but eastern Canada will get to see it around dusk. The total eclipse is at 5:44 EST and the whole show lasts over an hour. A few years ago I saw one of these that was just breathtaking; the moon literally turned dark red. It was so beautifully primordial; little wonder primitive people went nuts when stuff like this happened.
