Lunar Eclipse

Posted by barb on Oct 27, 2004 in Science Musings |

There is going to be a total lunar eclipse tonight. It will be visible in North and South America, Western Europe and Africa, weather permitting. If you’re in the DC metro area, there are several places holding observing parties tonight, including the University of Maryland’s Astronomy Department (there’s a list on that site of other DC clubs doing public observationst tonight). I’ll be out on our deck, assuming the clouds ever lift.

Space.com has more information on lunar eclipses in general, and this eclipse in particular.

The last time there was a total lunar eclipse visible in DC, Andrew and I were at the Alexandria Symphony, where, oddly enough, they were performing Holst’s The Planets.
