        I saw an announcement on the RTE website yesterday (but can't find it today) that the RTE website will be transmitting sunrise live from Newgrange on mid-winter day i.e. tomorrow - presumably that'll startat around 09.00 hours GMT.

                Just before sunrise on the Winter Solstice 2010, a Full Moon will turn red as it rests just above the western horizon. This event is known as a total lunar eclipse, as the Moon will move into Earth's shadow. From 6:32am, you will be able to see the Moon gradually get darker as Earth's shadow is cast upon it, and at 7:40am the Moon will have entered totality.


                This is the last lunar that can be seen from Ireland for the next five years, and Astronomy Ireland wants YOU to send in your photographs of the eclipse so we can keep a pictorial record on this website and in our magazine. Email your photos to moon@astronomy.ie.


                Astronomy Ireland will meet at Sean Moore Park in Sandymount at 7am on the morning of Tuesday, December 21st, to watch the eclipse. As the Moon sets, the Winter Soltice Sun will rise over the horizon, lined up with a modern standing stone alignment in the park. We invite everyone to join us for a fantastic morning of astronomy!

                  At a probable temperature of -7ÂșC icy roads and possibly heavy snow lying, I reckon that'll be a massive gathering! [img]smileys/c&#111;nfused.gif[/img]

                          Saw the lunar eclipse from the comfort of the spare room window upstairs - made quite a pretty scene together with the undisturbed snow at the back of the house. Tried taking a few pics with the digital camera but on the preview screen at least, they don't look like much. If I get them onto the PC and find a decent one I'll post it up.
                          Tis but a scratch.

                            stupid Limerick weather[img]smileys/sad.gif[/img]. No snow and the 2 nights there was something to see (Geminid meteor shower and todays eclipse/red moon) and we have fog. Seriously was this city founded on an indian burial ground or something?
