Total lunar eclipse this weekend


We will be treated to a total lunar eclipse this weekend. Fortunately, you won't have to get up in the middle of the night to see it. Some of you will probably have to stay up later than you want, but it should be a pretty spectacular show considering the forecast is calling for mostly clear skies. 
Moon passes through the Earth's shadow

The partial eclipse begins at 8:07 p.m. Sunday (Sep. 27)
The total eclipse begins at 9:11 p.m.
Max eclipse at 9:47 p.m.
Total eclipse ends at 10:23 p.m.

Here is a map of the areas that will be able to see the eclipse. The areas shaded in pink (or peach color) will be able to see the entire eclipse from start to end.
