"A total eclipse of the Moon occurs during the night of Wednesday, February 20/21, 2008. The entire event is visible from South America and most of North America (on Feb. 20) as well as Western Europe, Africa, and western Asia (on Feb. 21). During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray." - NASA website
It starts around 10 pm for those of us on the East Coast. A friend emailed me the following instructions: When you see it, make three wishes... one for your own wisdom and growth... one for the wellbeing of a loved one... and one for the world!
Update: it's 9:15 and it's already started here, so scratch the 10 pm start time!
Update #2: Check out Marta's blog for some amazing photos!
It was partly cloudy here so visibility wasn't perfect, but the clouds were blowing by fast and the eclipse kept coming in and out of view - very cool. The moon looked kind of pinkish/red during the totality phase.
