Tonight we are having a Lunar Eclipse. Which started at 18:20 ACST / 18:50 AEST. The Moon will be in the Total Eclipse phase from approximately 19:20 – 20:50 ACST / 19:50 – 21:20 AEST.
If you ever have problem with monitor out of sync when you meant to see the usplash. here is how to fix the problem. I my case my 19″ wide screen LCD can only handle maximum 1440×900 resolution.
Edit the usplash config file:
sudo nano /etc/usplash.conf
and change to the resolution to what your screen can do and save the file.
To activate the changes:
sudo update-initramfs -u
Now when you next reboot you should see usplash on your screen.
