There is a lunar eclipse coming up this next week. It will take place on February 20th, Wednesday, and it will be a total lunar eclipse, which means the moon will turn red and maybe even turquoise. We had one not too long ago; I remember blogging about it and we had perfect viewing conditions. The moon will be full this week, the weather will be quiet, and we should end up with optimal viewing conditions. We may have some clouds arriving late Wednesday night, but I'm still optimistic.
If I remember correctly, the last lunar eclipse was really early in the morning, but this one will be viewable before bedtime (at least for most of us)
On another note, our weather special is coming together and will air on March 11th at 6:30 p.m. It will focus on the Greensburg tornado, but there will be some other small pieces included in the special.
I'm preparing another blog contest for the upcoming spring season. I'll have more details coming up soon, so tell your friends and family to be looking for details in the next week or so.
