Some of you may have heard that tonight there will be total lunar eclipse. NASA has a nice page on tonight’s event. Of course east coast bias abounds and it begins with the details for EST experience (tip: partial eclipse starts at 8:43 pm EST and the full eclipse starts at 10:01 pm). But fear not, there are links to images of how it will work for other time zones and a nice chart of the key phases in the different time zones. Then again one can just subtract or add to the EST timeline to figure out what is going on in one’s area. Apparently Mr. Fred Espenak of NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center is the key to this wealth of information.
For those wishing to capture the moment, Fred has his own site on how to photograph the eclipse.
