Tonight the full moon will rise about the same time as the sun sets. If you go out on the sea or go up on a high building you should be able to see both sun and moon above the horizon at the same time, with the color of the sun reflecting on the rising moon. I think it will be a good show! Look for this sometime between 5-6 pm.

There will also be a Penumbral Lunal Eclipse tonight...

"A penumbral lunar eclipse -- so called because only the incomplete outer portion of the Earth's shadow, or penumbra, falls across the moon -- is expected to reach its deepest point at 7:50 p.m. ET on Friday, Oct. 18." 5:50 pm in Belize.

Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

Well --- we went out in a boat to watch. Couldn't see anything of the eclipse, and sun was hiding behind clouds -- BUT the moon was glorious. I hope some of my photos turned out!

I sat on my back porch last night and watched a beautiful sunset followed immediately by lovely moon rising from the other direction. Neat!
