>I would like to put your attention, colleagues, to very interesting astronomical up-coming event: the total moon eclipse that will take place in a week, on June 15 2011. The Sun, Earth, and Moon will be aligned exactly with the Earth in the middle, so the Earth's shadow will fall onto the Moon.
I saw such events several times in my life and should tell you: it looks great. The full moon gradually becoms red like ruby. I am going to take some photos using my 5'' scope. Perhaps someone of you will like to take shoots, as well.
North America will be out of game this time, but those who are located in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia have chances to watch the eclipse (if there will be no clouds at their locations, of course).
