Lunar Eclipse Dec. 21, 2010 by Bob Christmas
Watched the Eclipse from 2:25 to 2:50 this morning. At 2:37 I was looking through my binos and a brilliant meteor passed directly in front of the moon. It was startling as the contrast of the white flash against the orange background made me blink. We had partially clear skies in brantford and the seeing at times was very good. Easily saw the 3 globs in Auriga. M35 in Gemini and the moon just fit into the same field of view in my binos. Hope any who stayed up had clear skies! By the way, the time on the site is off by one hour so it looks like I posted this before it actually happened.
Follow up: It turns out that there was a meteor shower scheduled for last night; the Ursids. I guess I just got lucky being in the right place at the right time!
