If you are located in North or South America, Western Europe, or Africa do not miss the full lunar eclipse this Wednesday night i.e February 20th, 2008. As long as the weather cooperates, the eclipse will occur at a perfect time for viewing in most of the United States. The partial eclipse will begin at around 8:45pm EST with the full eclipse starting around 10:00pm [source]. Do not miss this celestial event if you can.
My previous total lunar eclipse viewing was more than 15 years back in India and this time around, I’m armed with a tripod and a 55-200mm lens to go with my Nikon D40. I’m sure Parag will be aiming his camera skyward too as he usually gets excellent results.
Update: Dang! It is a cloudy and misty night. Not a speck of sky visible let alone the moon. Sigh! Probably next time. Hope some of you got a glimpse. Share your photos please.
