The main event for the night will be the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, which will be visible from all of North and South America, Hawaii part of Alaska and Australia . It is perhaps the most exciting of the night’s events (though it technically begins early Tuesday morning Eastern time).
With the overcast rainy day and projected…..yes you guessed it….SNOW scheduled to hit the Midwest tomorrow morning, we may be unable to see the Total Lunar Eclipse here in Cleveland, Ohio. However, we can watch it online if we check the link below!!!
The Slooh, Virtual Telescope Project and NASA webcasts will all run concurrently during the total lunar eclipse. NASA will also offer a live chat with scientists during the eclipse, beginning at 2 a.m. EDT (0600 GMT) Tuesday and running the duration of the moon event. You can follow NASA’s webcast live here.
The lunar eclipse will begin at 12:53 a.m. EDT Tuesday (April 15), when the moon plunges into Earth’s outer shadow. The “totality” phase, in which the moon is completely veiled by Earth’s shadow, starts at 3:06 a.m. EDT and lasts for more than an hour, ending at 4:24 a.m. EDT.
