Lunar Eclipse

Don't forget to haul yourself out of bed tonight to catch the lunar eclipse.  By some judicious investigation into the free downloadable planetarium Stellarium (get it here), I made a little schedule for Eastern Standard Time:

1:33-2:07 AM The eclipse starts.  By 2:07 the moon will be half obscured.
2:07-2:44 AM Moon goes to total obscurity.
2:44-4:00 AM Moon in darkness.
4:00-4:24 AM Moon gradually becomes half revealed.
4:24-5:02 AM Moon goes back to normal.
