Total Lunar Eclipse Feb 20 2008

Space Weather News for Feb. 19, 2008

LUNAR ECLIPSE: On Wednesday night, February 20, the Full Moon will turn a delightful shade of red and possibly turquoise, too. It's a total lunar eclipse—the last one until Dec 2010.

Sky watchers in Europe, the Americas, parts of the Middle East and Africa are favored for good views of the two-hour event. Visit for full coverage including maps and timetables, live webcasts and discussion.

SPY SATELLITE UPDATE: The US Navy's first attempt to hit malfunctioning spy satellite USA 193 with a missile could come on Wednesday night during the lunar eclipse.

This is based on an air traffic advisory warning pilots to steer clear of a patch of Pacific Ocean near Hawaii just when USA 193 is due to pass overhead. Until the satellite is shot down, it remains visible to casual sky watchers during evening passes over US and Canadian towns and cities; experienced observers say the decaying satellite is sometimes as bright as the stars of Orion, making it an easy target for unaided eyes and off-the-shelf digital cameras.

Details, photos and more information are available at SpaceWeather and subscribers to SpaceWeatherPhone will receive email and telephone alerts when the spy-sat is about to appear over their backyards.#

During the Lunar Eclipse! That sounds appropriate for the Pentagon's spysat destruction which some folk think is more than it seems...and the dark of a Total Eclipse should be just dark enough to suit Cheney's walk on the Dark Side.

Near Hawaii, huh? This touted 'shoot down' isn't a metaphor for Obama, we hope.
