As normal, with clear weather and assuming it is dark at 08:17 UT at your location, it should be easily seen by all.
Next year, 2011, there will be two Total Lunar Eclipse events, but my location will be on the wrong side of the earth for each.
I was just thinking and wondering;
- Is the background noise for moon bounce communication minimized during an eclipse?
- Can a Glint of light be detected from the reflectors left on the moon, where the eclipsing moon appears on our horizon? - Now, that would be QRP signal from a QRO source!
