Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight

From spaceweather.com:

The eclipse begins around 3:30 pm EST (2030 UT) when the Moon enters the outskirts of Earth's shadow. During this early stage, it's possible to look at the Moon and not realize anything is happening. Only a hint of shadow cast across the lunar terrain hints of what is to come: By 5:00 pm EST (2200 UT) the difference will be unmistakable -- at least half the Moon is in deep shadow -- and by 6:00 pm EST (2300 UT) the whole Moon will turn a delightful shade of sunset red: animation.

Tonight's eclipse is visible from parts of all seven continents: map. Europe and Africa are favored. People there can see the entire eclipse from beginning to end high in the midnight sky.
In the United States, much of the eclipse takes place before moonrise. Even so, the eastern half of the country will enjoy a good view of totality. Observing tips: At the end of the day on Saturday, go outside and face east. As the sun sets behind your back, a red Moon will rise before your eyes--fantastic! Maximum eclipse is at 6:21 p.m. EST.

Cool, Crewsk! Tell TC that as soon as the sun goes down in the West, the moon will come up in the East and have a bloody red color!

We looked at the pics on the site & he's itching to get out his telescope now. I'm just happy yo see him getting excited over something other than the girl who sits next to him at school giving him her email address.
