Eugene Science Center hosts total lunar eclipse viewing party

Eugene Science Center hosts total lunar eclipse viewing party

If you miss Wednesday's lunar eclipse, you'll have to wait almost another year for the next one visible to North America. Plan on a photographic moment as the moon rises above the Atlantic's horizon at 5:17 p.m. just before the sun sets at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The large, bright full moon will be spectacular when paired with the eclipse.

The last time these three events coincided was March 1866.

A special evening is knocking at the door of the enthusiastic stargazers as they will get a rare chance of viewing a "super blue blood Moon" on Wednesday.

If the weather condition is excellent, then a citizen of Alaska, Australia, Eastern Asia and Hawaii can enjoy the whole lunar event process.

The civic body has ordered an inquiry to ascertain how the cylinder made it to the MRI room where metal objects are not allowed. A resident of Lalbaug, Maru worked as a salesman and was the only earning member of the family, according to Solanki.

"During the partial phases, you'll see Earth's shadow kind of creeping down from the top of the moon", said Chad Ellington, a volunteer with NASA's Solar System Ambassador Program and adjunct professor of Astronomy at Oklahoma City Community College.

NASA says the spectacle is being referred to as a "supermoon" because the moon will be roughly as close as it ever gets to Earth. January 1 was a full moon and January 31 is a full moon, so we call the second of the two the blue moon. The moon will also be closer to the earth on the day than usual as it is in a shorter orbit. A blue moon doesn't happen very often, according to EarthSky, about every 2.7 years.

The darker part of Earth's shadow will begin to blanket part of the moon with a reddish tint at 6:48 a.m., but the moon will set less than a half-hour later, Johnston said. On Wednesday night there will be a full moon, which is the second full moon in the same month.

For about an hour and 17 minutes, the full, "blue", "super" moon will pass through the shadow of the Earth, which will cast an erie orange-tinted shadow across the cratered surface.

The observatory will also be offering a live-stream of the lunar event on its website.
