Lunar Eclipse later this month

OK, So, Last night was a nice little meteor shower that I forgot to tell people about.
I stayed up through about 3:30am this morning watching it.
Since I forgot to tell people, I figured I'd give a little heads-up for something later this month.

ok... not really.

But we will have a nice Lunar Eclipse!
I've put some of the information below behind a cut for those of you not interested.
