The Moon will turn a rusty hue in the early hours of Monday and may seem larger in the sky. The event is caused by a total lunar eclipse coinciding with another astronomical event called a supermoon. It's the second total lunar eclipse this year, but the first since 2008 where the whole eclipse will be visible from the UK.
*SNIP*
From the UK, observers will see the Moon pass through the Earth's shadow in the early hours of Monday morning. In North and South America the eclipse will be seen on Sunday evening.www.bbc.com...


I'm hoping I can see this. Although I haven't a camera except for the crappy one on my phone, I'm hoping some ATS'ers can post their work so we can all enjoy it, regardless if we get to see it in person or not.

Unfortunately I don't have a lot to say about this except that I'm excited for the viewing possibility of a somewhat rare event and I hope it's a clear viewing night for all to enjoy.

Offhand, I believe totality starts around 10:10pm and lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes.

I won't say it'll be an all nighter but I have a small screen tent I'm going to set up on my deck see what I can see for as long as possible. I have a super position and I can see the moon easily on clear nights.

That's the time of totality.
It takes a couple of hours to get there once it starts. Once it's there it lasts an hour or so.

Curse you clouds!! I saw the super moon earlier, but I did not see the eclipse part so I suppose 1/2 is alright.

[edit]
I take that back now I see the red tinge on the moon. The clouds are slowly parting a bit.
