Lunar Eclipse 28 Aug 2007

Tomorrow morning between 07:54 UT and 13:21 UT, there will be a total lunar eclipse visible from the United States, Canada, South America, the Pacific Ocean, western Asia and Australia. A lunar eclipse is when the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon thus blocking out the light (except for any that refracts through the Earth's atmosphere). Unfortunately, Europe and Africa can't see this eclipse as we will be on the wrong side of the planet. For North America the eclipse is fairly early in the morning depending on your time zone (follow that link for times in EDT/CDT/PDT etc). In Australia the eclipse will be at a more at a much more civilized time in the evening. If you are in a part of the world that can see it, I hope the weather stays clear for you.
