I'll be driving back from a rehearsal. That should prove to be fun.<br>
What time's the moon supposed to rise?<br><br>
I'll be headed east...will the moon be in front of me or behind me at that time?

That sounds cool, but waaaaay too cold. The day's high is 7F, which is cold enough already. I don't brave the temps the darkness will bring. Another bike ride on the rollers for me!

At IMFL in 03 we had a total lunar eclipse. I was running my marathon and watching the moon. Probably the coolest running moment in my life. Having it happen on a super clear night at my first IM, priceless.<br><br>

<span style="font-family:'Courier New';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Moonrise here in RI tomorrow is just a couple minutes after 5:00pm in the ENE. But the eclipse doesn’t begin until 8:43pm and ends at 12:09am (21 Feb). At the start of the eclipse the moon will be at about 45-degrees above the horizon in the ESE. Schedule for your time zone can be found at this link.</span></span><br><a href="http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/LEmono/TLE2008Feb21/TLE2008Feb21.html" target="_blank"><span style="font-family:'Courier New';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#800080;">http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/LEmono/TLE2008Feb21/TLE2008Feb21.html</span></span></span></a><br><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Dan</span></span>

There was a meteor in the eastern sky this morning when BD was out on his run. He said he was too focused to see it.

Very cool!<br>
I'll be on the road driving, able to glance and watch,...provided we don't have clouds.
