Saturday's total lunar eclipse could be the "best in years". The eclipse begins at 2018, our time (GMT) with the Moon totally immersed in the shadow of the Earth between around 2244 and 2358. During the total eclipse, only light that has been filtered through the Earth's atmosphere reaches the Moon's surface, which will make it appear a reddish colour. The eclipse will be visible from the whole of Europe, Africa, South America, and eastern parts of the US and Canada. I have just been out looking and the moon is huge and very very bright. The sky is the clearest I have seen it in a long while. It should be very interesting later on tonight. I believe the East coast of the US is 5 hours behind us here in Tenerife so I have attached a link with info on timings elsewhere. SPACE.com -- Last Chance Until 2007: Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight!
