As August draws to an end, watchers of the night sky will be in for a treat. In the early morning hours of August 28, sky watchers across much of the world can look on as the Moon crosses in to the shadow of the Earth, becoming completely immersed for one-hour and 30 minutes, a period of time much longer than most typical lunar eclipses. In fact, this eclipse will be the deepest and longest in 7 years.

I didn't really know which section to put this in, but I'm guessing it's on this one? This sounds really interesting. It'll be visible after midnight at the mentioned continents.

*Title fixed*

Your title is wrong. That's a lunar eclipse, not a aolar eclipse.

And, according to the article, it won't be visible in Africa or Europe. And totality will be obscured on the U.S. east coast by sunrise.

Oh oops, my mistake. I knew that, I just didn't think of it while I wrote the title. Ohh oops, I forgot that part of the text, haha. Okay so Europeans won't be able to see it. Too badT_T

It's pretty cool how many astronomical events are packed into this small time frame. We just had 2 meteor showers within a few months of each other, we're getting a nice lunar eclipse, there's another meteor shower september 1st that's believed to be a rare outburst resulting in a high number of bright blue green meteors, and mars is coming closer to earth, resulting in a nice red light becoming more dominant in the sky (and it's to be parallel with another bright red star so we'll have some cool lookin demon eyes action) Unfortunately, someone's bound to "connect the dots" and predict the end of the world... yet again. Or will it be the return of jesus... again. Or First Contact...again.

A preview if you missed it happening or can't see it.

Did it happen? Any pictures? Is it over?

It reminds me of Steven King's Dolores Claighburn. Any UFO's around the eclypse?
