Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight
I am into the stars, planets and cosmos big time! Tonight, we on earth (that includes all of us) will experience a total lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, it won’t be visible to us in central New York, or even North America.
According to an article in The Huffington Post:
“The moment of totality — when the Earth’s shadow completely blocks the moon — will last 1 hour and 40 minutes during tonight’s lunar eclipse. The last time a lunar eclipse lasted as long was in July 2000, when totality occurred for just 7 minutes longer.
According to Space.com, the lunar eclipse will begin about 1:24 p.m. EDT (1724 GMT) and finish around 7 p.m. EDT (2300 GMT). The lunar eclipse will peak at 4:12 p.m. EDT (2012 GMT).
Despite not being visible from North America, anyone unable to see the lunar eclipse in their own sky can watch online. Sky Watchers Association Of North Bengal (SWAN) will be a doing a live webcast of the entire lunar eclipse.”
