Total Lunar Eclipse -- May 15, 2003 (tonite)!!!!


TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE MAY 15, 2003!


Total eclipse of the Moon, May 15-16. The beginning of the umbral phase will be visible in eastern North America; the end will be visible in North America except the extreme northwest. The Moon enters penumbra at 9:05 P.M. EDT (6:05 P.M. PDT); the umbral phase begins at 10:03 P.M. EDT (7:03 P.M. PDT); totality begins at 11:14 P.M. EDT (8:14 P.M. PDT) and ends at 12:06 A.M. EDT (9:06 P.M. PDT); the umbral phase ends at 1:17 A.M. EDT (10:17 P.M.); the Moon leaves penumbra at 2:15 A.M. EDT (11:15 P.M. PDT).

Below are a few websites I found with some good info on the eclipse and viewing times.

--------------------------------------------



For a complete time table and info, click the website below.

to find out the times for the eclipse from your location, click on the website below for the U.S. Naval Observatory and enter your location in the Lunar Eclipse Computer. The first part is for U.S. Cities and towns and the second part is for worldwide cities and towns.

I hope y'all get a chance to get out and see the eclipse! Unfortunately the weather forecast is for clouds and possibly thunderstorms here tomorrow, so I doubt if I will be able to see the eclipse

I'm in the no eclipse visible zone...last time there was one I was only about five or six I think, and they said it would be 60 or 300 years (can't remember) till the next one in my area.

total eclipse for me, hopefully there will be a clear sky


Once upon a time I was falling in love but now I'm only falling apart.
There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart.
Once upon a time there was light in my life but now there's only love in the dark.
Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.

This full moon lunar eclipse takes place in the sign of Scorpio. Scorpios, hold on to your seats. Change is in the air.

We'll have to get out the telescope. It is crystal clear outside today, I hope it will be tonight, too.

Thanks ABEL.

I'm a Scorpio

unfortunately it's still cloudy here...and later on after midnight and towards morning, there's a chance of thunderstorms here, some strong...so it looks like the eclipse will be hiding behind the clouds from me...I hope I won't be hiding from tornadoes
