The PENUMBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE of August 6 2009 will not be visible to the naked eye.

The Ball is Not a Metaphor ......

A shallow penumbral eclipse occurs 15 days after the total solar eclipse. It will not be visible to the naked eye since its magnitude is only 0.402

This completes the lunar-solar-lunar triple eclipse series this year. For more information go to Wikipedia direct.

  1. Gosh, this is all very clever.
    I would have to study it and think about it.
    Claudia is now working at the Maritime Museum at Greenwich, England where they have an OBSERVATORY.
    I will have to go there to learn things......!

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
