Total Lunar Eclipse Meets Technology

While at work I came across this article, http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2011/06/lunar-eclipse-today-live-on-youtube.html, and decided to check out the longest lunar eclipse in over a decade (100 minutes). 

The coolest thing about the internet, in my opinion, is when it is used for good and can help bridge gaps and bring cultures closer together.  This relates because it could only be viewed in places like South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe.

Now, while sitting there at work, I decided to pull up an extra browser page and watch it on my extra screen (dual monitors for design).  I tuned in around 2:30 PM EST, and it had basically just started.  After a little over 30 minutes, it dawned on my that I may have friends that cannot watch the live feed, so I decided to screen capture the event.  Here they are:

Then, I decided to head home, but I am pretty sure everyone knows how this ended; not in a zombie apocalypse either! =)

On a completely different note, but still good news, I found out that there is no nerve damage or impingement on any of the nerves in the lumbar region of my back.  I had to have a fairly uncomfortable EMG test with electrodes and needles, but it was completely worth it to eliminate that from any of the problems.

Next step is good, old physical therapy.  We shall see how that goes.  I have a pretty hectic schedule, but there is a place .24 miles from the house.  This is a good thing.

Anyway, time for bed.  I am sleepy and my right leg is getting twitchy again!
