Any werewolves with cameras out there?

There's a full moon and a lunar eclipse that will turn the moon copper tonight ... anybody willing or planning to stay up to photograph it?

If yes, I've set up a gallery for your photos here.

Now, because of our overcast skies, it's a bit dicey as to whether you'll be able to see it. The National Weather Service in Taunton says that because of clouds and flurries, the eclipse -- the first in nearly three years -- may not be visible in Boston and the surrounding areas. The best chance to catch a glimpse of the eclipse will be west of Worcester.

However, officials at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics are holding out hope that viewers in Greater Boston might see the eclipse.

“Right now it looks like there may be a window tonight. Of course, we live in Boston. We never know,” David Aguilar said, director of public affairs at the center.

The eclipse will begin around 1:30 a.m., and will last until about 5 a.m., as the earth's shadow creeps across the moon and then recedes, Aguilar said.

He predicted that glimpses of the copper-colored moon, at least,should be visible between the clouds.

If the clouds do interfere with watching the eclipse in Massachusetts, you can always watch it online. NASA says it will post streaming video from Huntsville, Ala., at

Again, if you are successful in capturing an image, please post your photos here.

(Just be careful of the silver halide, werewolves.)

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
