Caused by the pollution of the earths atmosphere it is expected that the moon will shine in a dark red or brown colour, hence the name bloody moon.
Since the weather forecast for this night isn’t too bad, it might be an interesting undertaking to enjoy this astronomic event in combination with a SOTA activation.
I can see only two major obstacles that keep one from hiking up to a summit, since the total eclipse will be between 02:11 AM and 3.23 AM in the night:
At this time of day, chasers more likely press their ears against their pillows than against the loudspeaker of their radios. So, no chance for getting enough QSOs in order to qualify a summit.
(At least an obstacle for me) Job is awaiting a well-rested and relaxed employee on Monday morning.
So it will be unlikely that I’m on tour.
Has anybody else plans for being outdoor during this event?
