Sky Guy Viewing ALERT: Total Lunar Eclipse 4/4/15

Hey Space Placers!

Sorry for this abbreviated Viewing Alert but I am at sea. The 4/4/15 lunar eclipse will be visible over a wide part of the U.S. and the Pacific. Check out these  articles to find out what you will see where you live.

I will try and observe/photograph the eclipse at sea on the Statendam starting at 4 a.m. local time. We will be just above the equator.


LUNAR ECLIPSE:  Sky watchers on the Pacific side of Earth can see a brief but beautiful lunar eclipse on Saturday morning, April 4th.  The Moon will turn red, and possibly turquoise, too, as the lunar disk passes through the shadow of our planet.  Totality lasts for less than 5 minutes, so it is important to be outside at the right moment.  Check for viewing times and more information.
