Ok,wait a lunar minute!

Can someone in the US help me or anyone better with time than I am!? I just saw the moon fairly high in the sky at 6:30pm central daylight time....I'm in Arkansas the moon is supposed to rise at 8:09 pm....How can it be at the eastern horizon at 8 Sunday if it seems to have risen at 4:30 pm on Friday? Is it setting when the eclipse happens?

May the Eclipse be with Us,...whenever it is


oh but may I say NannaB, you are right, it, the moon , is glorious right now !

  • When the moon is in the Seventh House and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars.

    Sorry, Abirke! I could not resist! I'm trying to cheer myself up with humor. Well a rather dry humor I suppose.:)

    Anyway, try timeanddate.com for a more sensible approach.:)


  • One of my favorite songs Jeannie and you did it so well :)


  • I haven't heard that song in ages (no pun intended)

    Thank you Jeannie, will look at that timeanddate.com site.

    Hope you get to a cloudless night, Audrey!

  • Peterjones, the piece was just about this wkds. equinox. I don't know who the scientist was...but I did think him rather poetic when he noted that the light we see on the moon at equinox, is either the sunrise or sunset someone in the world ....wow , how beautiful!

    I think if you go to npr.org you might find it in show called, 'Science Friday' (9/25/15).




  • Yah I got it Mr Jones, In fact I get it every full moon! hahaha...

    With this super moon, I wonder if they were more loony! I'm always loony so I can't really tell...hahah


  • From little Rock Arkansas

    Begins Sunday 27th. 19.11

    Maximum 21.47

    Ends Monday 28th. 00.22

    Google told me. I'm not clever enough to work it out myself.



  • Yes, thank you NannB. It's not at moon rise, it's when moon is in the sky that it begins the penumbral phase, which means we will get to see moon go into earths shadow at 19.11hours! and it will be in full shadow at 21.47 hours.....This is probably why I miss drs appts.! The other day we went to one when we should have gone to the other. Had to cancel one and go to the other on the next day (as scheduled).....Is it the lack of HAVING to ever be anywhere that is atrophying my brain.....ugh

    Well B got up to potty now I'm up and its only 2:38 am...think I'll give sleep another go
