Default Lunar Eclipse Tonight (2/20/08)

Be sure to check out the lunar eclipse tonight. There isn't going to another eclipse until the year 2010! Those in the Pittsburgh area - we should be able to see it shortly before 10:00 PM tonight. (I swear, though, I see one every time I attend a Pens game. )

http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/...75/detail.html

LOS ANGELES -- It's your last chance to see a total lunar eclipse for nearly three years.

It happens Wednesday night, and wherever the weather allows, it should be visible from North and South America.

There also are guest stars this time -- or, to be more precise, a star and a planet.

Skywatchers should be able to see Saturn and the bright star Regulus on either side of the full moon.

With a telescope, you might even see Saturn's rings.

Wednesday's total eclipse phase will last nearly an hour.

Earth's shadow is expected to blot out the moon beginning around 7 p.m. on the West Coast and 10 p.m. on the East Coast.

West Coast skygazers will miss the start of the eclipse because it occurs before the moon rises.

Forecasters warn that the weather could be a spoiler.

Cloudy skies are expected for most of the Western states, and there's a chance of snow from the heartland to the East Coast.

Wednesday's event will be the last total lunar eclipse until Dec. 20, 2010.

It's probably going to be too cloudy for us over hear near Philly.

The clouds have thinned quite a bit in the last half hour. Looks like we'll get to see it.

It wasn't too cloudy to see here in NJ. Since I'm not exactly sure what a Lunar Eclipse is, I wasn't entirely sure what I was looking at. Still, it was pretty cool. I think I'll go google it.

UPDATE: Ahh, so it is actually in the Earths' shadow. Again, pretty cool.
