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 p.m..
