    I know.

    My wife always tries to talk over the noise of the vacuum, and I can never hear her.

    Another blood moon on the way.

    This one apparently heralds the end of the world though, for some reason the last one didn't.

    The Moon will rise partially eclipsed at 8:50pm and be totally eclipsed by 9:20pm so being low down should look really big, and you should be able to get some good photos.

    Gray, can you recommend a good site to refer to for ISS passes, I used to have a good one that some one here recommended, but it got lost somewhere.

    Yes that's the best one, remember to put in your location accurately.
    To do this click on Location at the top right which opens a form.
    Search for your town.
    Optionally click on the google map to get a more accurate positioning.
    Then and press the update button at the bottom of the form, NOT the one next to "WHAT3WORDS" (whatever that is!)

    Blood moon tonight, just to remind folks. Partial cloud here on the forecast, but a good chance of a clear patch or 2 I reckon. Our balcony faces SE over the sea, so we are quite excited.
