2019 Total Lunar Eclipse
« on: January 21, 2019, 01:24:05 AM »
In 4 hours, the blood moon eclipse will reach totality in NA, SA, Greenland, Iceland, and the UK.  If you're in one of these locations, let's try to take photos if we have a clear sky above us.

It will begin around 11:41 p.m. ET on Jan. 20 and peak around 12:16 a.m. ET on Jan. 21.

Lunar eclipse doesn’t have a flat earth explanation. Let’s hope that changes after tonight. Maybe we can gather some data.

If you do watch the eclipse, take note of whether it comes from the East or the West on the moon's surface. Sometimes it runs contrary to RET.

In hindsight... China should have landed on the near side of the moon to film the lunar eclipse from the moons perspective, lol.

Apparently, I dont have the right equipment for doing night time photos of astronomical objects. However, my observations 10:45pm EST in Indianapolis, Indiana, show me that the eclipse is coming on in the bottom side (East?) of my view of the moon as I am facing SE 120 degrees (according to the compass on my phone).

I was able to take some crappy photos with my phone through the lens of my telescope. (Don't make fun of me, lol, my budget is spent on children).

I’m getting similar results. I’m about 4 hours southeast of you.
I’m in no position for a true experiment, as I’m at work, but it seems when I’m facing southeast at 140° the shadow is at the bottom. 11pm.

EDIT
Moon is almost half covered.

EDIT EDIT
Around 10:45 is was in fact more in line with 120°

EDITx3 11:20pm 150°

Moon is almost completely in Earth's shadow right now.  Moon on my s/e at approximately 150 degrees.  Coming in from bottom left.  I'll up pics later.

This is a misunderstanding on Tom's part. A number of us attempted to explain how it works, but I'm not sure he ever understood it or not. As of his last post in that thread he continued to state he didn't.

According to FE theory there should be some other body covering the moon right now.  If that's the case then that mysterious body should be directly above the earth somewhere and be fully lit by the sun.
It should be fully visible somewhere on the earth.  Just where is it?  who can see it?
For FE no explanation is possible, for RE no explanation is necessary.

The Moon is almost completely dark on my W (271°).

EDIT: The shadow is moving from my left to my right.

Dr Rowbotham was accurate in his experiments.
How do you know without repeating them?
Because they don't need to be repeated, they were correct.

 Yeah, I just asked for the source because I knew Tom didn’t understand what he was trying to debunk. I’m not entirely sure how it works either, but I know it’s more complex than just east/west. The reason we don’t have a lunar eclipse all the time is because it orbits the earth on a different plane than the earth orbits the sun. Or something like that. I don’t know I’m kinda drunk I’ll get back to you in the morning lol

It all started off quite well for me here, but after this the clouds rolled in and that was the last I saw. Missed the whole blood moon thing altogether.

That is right. The Moons orbit around Earth is inclined to the Earths orbit around the Sun by 5 degrees. Most months the full Moon passes either north or south of the extent of the Earths shadow.

Yes. Bastard clouds. I got a couple of photos (not as good as those) when the shadow started to go across but then the clouds obscured the rest :(
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

And to add insult to injury - hardly a cloud in the sky now of course. Argh!

Yes, it did this last time. Lovely clear night skies for days, then we had an eclipse and it was completely covered in cloud :(
Interested by this quote from this Wiki page:

Quote
The Sun's light is powerful enough to shine through the outer layers of the Shadow Object, just as a flashlight is powerful enough to shine through your hand when you put it right up against your palm.
https://wiki.tfes.org/Why_the_Lunar_Eclipse_is_Red

The reason your hand looks red when you shine a torch through it is because there's blood in your hands and blood is red. The reason in the real world why the lunar eclipse is red is because of the way light filters through the atmosphere and hits the moon, the same reason sunsets are red. I'm not clear what FE think is in the shadow object which causes the red effect.
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

When was it confirmed to do this?

Do you mean true E/W in lunar geography, or a notional North=up, South=down, West=left, East=right for a particular observer?
