Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Get out your telescopes, there’s a lunar eclipse tonight.

From 10:00pm to 10:52pm ET, the moon will slip into Earth’s shadow. It will actually begin at 8:43ET; about 9:20PM is when you’ll start to see the beautiful penumbral shadow. The eclipse (unlike most solar eclipses) will be viewable by almost everyone in the country at the same time.
Unfortunately, the forecast is calling for “mostly cloudy skies” in the Philadelphia area. But if there are openings, I’ll try and snap a few photos of the event, and will post here… stay tuned.
