There can't be one person with Internet access that doesn't know about the total lunar eclipse set to rise Saturday. This eclipse will be the third of four total eclipses in a lunar eclipse tetrad. The first occurred in April 2014, with the second rising in September 2014. The final lunar eclipse in the tetrad will happen on September 28.




Only the speediest of skywatchers will have a chance to see the total lunar eclipse rising Saturday: NASA predicts that the total phase of the lunar eclipse will only last about 5 minutes, making it the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.

Early-rising observers all over the United States should be able to see at least the partial phases of the April 4 lunar eclipse just before the sun rises, if weather permits. People on the West Coast will have the chance to see the moon turn an eerie shade of red during totality, which should begin at about 7:58 a.m. EDT (1158 GMT, 4:58 a.m. PDT). NASA this week unveiled a video detailing the total lunar eclipse, and dubbed the event the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.


We here at ATS like to keep an eye on the sky on normal days. We love to keep an eye on the sky when nature insists on putting up a good show. Some of us are in areas where we can't see this eclipse without climbing in our car and driving out, some of us are housebound and wish that we could get in our car to find the perfect spot to see this. And naturally, some of us will have front row seats... Those are the ones who should take their pics and share them with the rest of us.


For those who will not be able to see this for whatever reason, I found some links so you don't have to miss out completely.

You can go here - main.slooh.com... They will start the show as soon as the Moon does.

You can also go here - www.virtualtelescope.eu... To catch the show.

Keep both links as sometimes they get wonky when too many folks get on, so the more you have the better your chances are of seeing the event.

You can also TWEET a NASA Astronomer with any questions you might have!!


If you have any questions about the eclipse, you can ask a NASA astronomer via Twitter on Saturday using the hashtag #eclipse2015 starting at 6 a.m. EDT and lasting through the end of the eclipse at about 8 a.m. EDT (1200 GMT).


If you go here - www.timeanddate.com... you can get the time for your specific time zones if you need it.

If any of you have links to share, they would be appreciated as well.

I ran across plenty of links that were telling me the world was ending or the end was nigh! I had to dig past those to find anything else just about.


This will be the first one I will get to see, so I am probably more excited than most.

I had the privilege of seeing one of the previous 2 , not sure which one but it is well worth the effort to have a look . The colours seemed to be at their most vibrant towards the end of the eclipse . Also i have to add you might need to edit the not one person line . Perhaps something like ,

There can't be one person with Internet access that doesn't know about the total lunar eclipse set to rise Saturday except hutch622.

Phooey! It appears that it would be less than 50% in my location and we are having awful (rainy) weather!
Thank you for the links as that may be my best (only) option to view.

This blood moon will be the first movements to remove me from my slumber. I will take my true form and finally walk the earth as a whole being again for the first time in eons.



I don't think there is any way I will be able to catch this, so I'm hoping to see some great media here! I know we have some members with some great equipment.
