About January 31st......................

That's a shot I took of Ally in 2012, Mykey eventually tore up that toy rope I'd bought her.

Looks like the eve on January 31st will be a one time thing in our lifetimes, I sure hope I do not forget to be outside when it happens:
A total eclipse of a "blue moon" will occur on Jan. 31 — the first time this has happened since 1866.

I hope you do too. Maybe things will get to a point where the two of you will be able to meet up again.

I wonder if we will be able to watch it in the southern hemisphere.

I wonder the same thing, sometimes these events are only visible in areas I cannot travel to.

Yeah, I kinds wondered if that would be the problem, I have a site I'll use to see if I have a chance to see it .... of course if it's too early in the mornin I'll completely forget, I do good just gettin up to let the pup out and these days she's not too keen on goin out. Blasted little woose, wonder what she'd do if it were as cold here as it is where you are.

I know @Hannihar but I suppose a lot of pro photographers flew to areas where they could get those shots, they are so competitive

I am in far west Texas but you may be right, many times those special kinds of events are just not visible this far south.

Well yeah @shaggin we'll get to see what others saw but like with the planet lineup that happened in the 1980s, which I missed, I'd rather see it for myself.

I probably won't be able to see it even if it's not cold, so far this region never has the right view of any of these events ..... maybe in 150 years though, unless I'm napping

My husband gets excited about that sort of thing. I'm inclined to focus on the fact that January 31, 2018 is a ONCE only event. Blue moons, lunar eclipses, those all happen every now and again, but each and every day is a once-off all by itself!
