Nice Night for an Eclipse & Missile Defense

Just wanted to remind everyone of the full lunar eclipse tonight. It's supposed to be partly cloudy tonight, but as of 6:45 p.m. in Golden Valley, the sky is clear. Here's the link to the NASA page with the eclipse time frame.

As a side note, the government plans to use the missile defense system to shoot down a spy satellite tonight. Wacky! (Well, that's one word...)
