Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight


Explanation:
Go outside tonight and see the total lunar eclipse.

Tonight's eclipse is easy and convenient for much of the world to see.

Anyone who can spot a
full Moon
can see it fade out as the
Earth's shadow engulfs it.

No protective glasses or expensive telescopes are needed, just a little
moxie.

The above illustration shows how the eclipse will appear across the Earth.

The total lunar eclipse starts at 9:14 pm
Eastern Daylight Time, equivalent to 1:14 am
UT
in the morning for sky enthusiasts in the
United Kingdom.

From the moment the first part of the
Moon disappears to the moment
that the last part of the Moon reappears will be 3 hours and 40 minutes.

For those unfortunate enough to suffer
clouds, the eclipse can also be followed over several live webcasts.
