The eclipse is only visible from North America, though.

Fabulous! Thanks for sharing this. I would have missed them! Let's hope we're not clouded over both those days ;)

I caught sight of these last month but well... I wasn't posting anything on here last month. Thanks for reminding me though. Any of our starstruck pagans here remember the significance of a Full Moon eclipsing within bare hours of solstice? :?: doiknow:

Do tell :rolleyes: :lol: Shall I get the restraints, or tell the local hospital to have a bit more security on premise? :-D

Actually, I'm not sure :lol: ... I'm going to be looking for more on it myself.

I realized yesterday that I really should care about full moon's/eclipses/other stuff for every celebration, but Yule is my favourite holiday. I'm pretty sure that is because I was born on a Winter Solstice.

I will let you know when I find out. :-D

Until then, increase the security! (and let me know what day of the Triffids is? :oops: )

Interesting. I was born Oktober and am convinced that is why I LOVE Autumn. (Fall to you lot. :lol: )

"Day of the Trifids", you SERIOUSLY do not know the book/film?

A meteor shower, which turned every one who saw it blind, set off these plants that chased and ate people. A bit like war of the worlds in wood.

War of the Worlds? I would describe it more as "Night of the Zombie Sunflowers". :lol:

Yes. But I am not a great fan of SF. In fact films of any sort really.

Ah, it cleared up for a few hours near dusk, and then went right back to heavy rain. Boo! Ah well, we'll see the next one, which better be in drought season!
