Lunar Eclipse 3 March

FYI -- There will be a total lunar eclipse 3 March. Viewers in Europe should have excellent views. The following site will give you the times according to your US location name, or Lat+Long world-wide.

At my location, totality will be ending as the moon rises. If we have our usual astronomical luck, the sky will be clouded over to the east.

Re: Lunar Eclipse 3 March

Thanks for that Joe - I've been on to the site (and Google Earth, to find my exact latitude/longitude!).

So for anyone in a line with me in the UK, (W1.22, E52.22) the moon will enter the penumbra at 20.16, the umbra at 21.30 and totality is 22.43. The moon leaves the penumbra at 02.25, but don't think I'll be up for that!

Here's hoping for fine weather....

Carol

I remember it well - some of the local farmers made a fortune by towing people out of the car park!

And what about Northampton's weather?
