Total Lunar Eclipse

Tonight, starting around 8pm, there will be a total lunar eclipse. And it will be the last one until 2007! If you have never had a chance to see a lunar eclipse, I highly recommend taking a break from watching the Red Sox to take a peek at the moon. Although the eclipse starts around 8pm, you won't start seeing much action until after 9pm and totality will go from 10:23pm until around 11:45pm. When the moon is completely in the earth's shadow (or umbra) it will look reddish - a pretty cool sight you can catch with the naked eye or with binoculars.
