We have some clouds right now, but we are still heading to
Monrovia's Library Park, corner of Myrtle and Lime Streets to
hopefully see the Total Lunar Eclipse. For people at home, or with
a nice eastern horizon, you will already be seeing the moon rise!!
Good luck everyone!!
The partial lunar eclipse begins at 6:07 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
It will last a little more than an hour, and observers can watch as,
crater by crater, the moon is engulfed in Earth's shadow. West Coast
viewers take note: when the eclipse begins, the moon won't have
risen yet for you. The total eclipse begins at 7:11 p.m. Pacific
Daylight Time and also lasts for more than an hour, ending at 8:23
p.m. The moon's reddish color you'll see is caused by sunlight
refracting through Earth's atmosphere on its way to light the moon's
surface. Then it's the whole show in reverse order, ending at 9:27
