SUMMARY: Hate to nag, but I just wanted to give you one last reminder about Saturday night's total lunar eclipse. If you live anywhere in the Americas, Europe or Africa, you'll be able to see most if not all of the eclipse. They're a wonderful thing to watch - you can actually see the Earth's shadow slowly obscure the Moon until it turns a deep coppery red.

You don't need special equipment, or be at the right place at the right time. If you can see the Moon, you can watch the eclipse. The visible eclipse begins on Saturday, November 8 at 2332 GMT (6:32 pm EST) and ends about four hours later.

For those of you who can't see the eclipse from your part of the world, or if the weather doesn't cooperate, I'll be linking to all the astrocameras I can find providing live coverage of the eclipse on the Internet (the list is incomplete right now, but I'll fill it in as the event approaches).
