Set Your Alarm Clocks

Lunar EclipseThis is the view from Scarth & 12th looking east at around 7 p.m. tonight (click to enlarge). The yellowish-white blob in the middle is the newly risen full moon. Seven or so hours from now Reginans will have an opportunity to see it in total eclipse. You can read more in this CBC report.

In Regina, the Earth’s shadow will start to intrude on the lunar disc around 2:15 a.m. When the eclipse is total around 4:15 a.m. the moon will be a vibrant red. The CBC report also notes that the Draconid meteor shower is happening tonight too. When the moon is in eclipse, it will be easier to observe. So keep an eye out.
