Feb. Tuesday 19th

AnneMitchell.net (Click on the web address to check it out!)

The new look of my website is up and running. After a brief technical difficulty with uploading the new site and archiving the old one, I am happy to say that it is fully functional. There will be several new pages that will take place over the following weeks. Take a look and keep an eye out for all of the changes.

Today was spent with more weeding. Slowly the battle of the desert is being waged and it looks as if I may be winning. (It is an illusion I know, but let me believe that I can win this one just for a few weeks.)

On Wednesday, February 20, 2008, beginning at 7:01 p.m. PST, the moon will move completely under the shadow of the Earth in a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse can be seen in the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Hope for good weather because the next total lunar eclipse won't happen until December 2010.

The moon will be completely under Earth's shadow for about 50 minutes. During this time, the moon won't be completely obscured because of indirect light coming from the Earth's atmosphere. But the moon will appear to change colors from light gray to orange or deep red. The shade depends on the amount of dust and clouds in the Earth's atmosphere.
