Default 15 April 2014 Total Lunar Eclipse

This event will be visible to everybody in the Americas, so I thought I would give a heads-up. The greatest eclipse will occur at 7:46 AM UT, 3:36 AM EDT, or 12:46 AM PDT. Click here for more information.



Greatest eclipse is *Click here to restart the timer*.

I personally plan on photographing the event and will share the results.

Hopefully, I'll have some clear weather for this. But, then again, it's April.

I'd be the type of person that'd wait outside an hour or so early just to truthfully say they saw it start to finish.

Videos Total Lunar Eclipse of April 15, 2014 (& A Martian Close Encounter of the pi-th kind)



....well I will not be able to see this as it happens during afternoon daytime here (except on the web), but those in the Americas are in the prime spot to see this one, with a total eclipse time of 1 hour and 18 minutes. With Spica only 2 degrees away from the Moon during eclipse and Mars, itself approaching to be closest to Earth for the 2013/14 window only hours from the eclipse (actually 4 hours from now, and 6 days after opposition) being only 10 degrees away, it should make for a spectacular show over the spring skies.

Please report if you intend to observe this (or just Mars at its brightest till 2016).

Detailed information here: http://www.mreclipse.com/LEdata/TLE2...2014Apr15.html

Except of course, most of the Eastern US as it'll be cloudy! I, might, have a short window to observe it and in which case I'll be taking pictures.

Mars opposition, lunar eclipse, and a SpaceX launch all in 24 hours -- all of which will be visible in my backyard? Awesome.

I'll try to have a go at it in Seattle, if the weather permits.

Weather forecast indicates 50% cloud cover and high humidity.

But the next chance is only in September next year, so, i'm going to the planetarium.

Normally when I attend an astronomical event something bad happens and prevents me. But this time the occasion is good.

Climatological data are:

Humidity: 59%
Wind: NW at 19km / h
Pressure: 1014.7mb
Temperature: 14 C
http://freemeteo.com/default.asp?pid...d=3864881&la=4

It's cold but, I promised that although rain down meteors, or nitrogen stalactites, was to witness this event.

I take this post to thank everyone who helped me to buy the telescope, and from here I send greetings to my science teacher Hugo Candino.

|--------------------------------------------------------EDIT---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
I upload an image in this forum, but then I'll upload the full album MediaFire (because I do not want to go to sleep late).
