Look to the skies tonight to see an "almost total" lunar eclipse! 🌕
Tonight (and by that we mean overnight, like the "technically tomorrow" part of the night) we'll be in an excellent position to observe the lunar eclipse. The event begins just after 12am, but peak viewing in our area is at 3:03am.
During this lunar eclipse, the moon will appear red as the Earth's shadow covers it.

Explained by our local station channel 2 meteorologist Anthony Yanez
This lunar eclipse will last 6 hours and 1 minute, the longest the moon has been in the Earth's shadow since February 18, 1440.
 


Early Friday morning, November 19th, early risers will get to see a partial lunar eclipse. A partial eclipse is when the moon enters what's called the penumbra.

I'll set an alarm for it. Now, whether I get up or just turn the alarm back off, that's a whole 'nother thing.

Wow! So interesting to see what the GOES satellite can do for science! I actually thought the satellite was replaced a couple of years ago-but it's nice to know we forge forward and onward!
