Looks like we are in for a good show tomorrow evening if the weather co-operates and permits us a view of the total lunar eclipse. This entire eclipse will visible to those in the Western Hemisphere – primarily those of us in North and South America as well as folks in Western Europe, Africa, and western Asia (on Feb. 21) from 0301 Greenwich until 0351 GMT… or starting at 19:01 Pacific time and lasting for 51 minutes.
According to the Nasa site, the show should be an exciting one as “the Moon’s disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray”.
Ed will have his 10″ Celestron telescope set up in the backyard and we’ll invite the neighbours over for the event. I particularly am looking forward to seeing how well my new Ultra Flip video camera works in the dark… the really dark! 🙂
