    The moon is full tonight, with Jupiter preceeding it across the sky.

    Jupiter and it's moons are visible with a modest telescope.

    We had a full lunar eclipse a couple of years ago, it was a strange sight, I had a small telescope trained on the moon and when it disappeared, it DISSAPEARED! even through the scope.

    I love the copper colour of the moon surface during the total phase of the lunar eclipse.

    I would like to be n the moon during a total lunar eclipse,from there it would be a solar eclipse of course. Whatching the golden rim of the earth... Mmmm...

    Has that picture actually been taken by anybodies space probe yet?
    Don't think so. It would be quite a sight for sure!

    From the heights of the satellites, yes, but from the distance of the moon? I don't think so.

    But we know the science, we know how it would look.
