Wanted to give the star gazers here a heads up.
Should be a good showing.



(BBC)-Skywatchers eagerly awaiting Saturday's total lunar eclipse say that the spectacle could be the "best in years".

news.bbc.co.uk...


The eclipse begins at 2018 GMT, with the Moon totally immersed in the shadow of the Earth between 2244 and 2358 GMT.

During "totality", only light that has been filtered through the Earth's atmosphere reaches the Moon's surface, making it appear a reddish colour.

The eclipse will be visible from the whole of Europe, Africa, South America, and eastern parts of the US and Canada.

West coast viewers are out of luck. They happen every 1.2 years. East Coast starts around 5:44pm. The moon gets a reddish hue in appearance due to the earths reflection. I'll be getting my binoculars out, celestron 15x70, kind of hard to hold steady but they have wide 4 degree field of view. That Alabama storm has recently brought in alot of cloud cover, it's doubtful but I'm hoping.

Peace
