    Re: Lunar Distance of the Day

    I'd enjoy being able to see *any* celestial object other than clouds -- it
    has been overcast, rainy and cold here for two straight weeks here in PEI.
    The whole Island is going stir-crazy, let alone the celestial navigators.
    We're supposed to have a lunar eclipse here tonight --
