Total Lunar Eclipse

TORONTO – Astronomers predict a total lunar eclipse tonight that will be visible anywhere in Canada where the skies are clear.

The moon will appear when the Earth's shadow begins to travel across the lunar surface at 8:42 p.m. Eastern time.

When the moon is completely hidden around 10 p.m., it could appear to be blood red or bright orange and later change to dark brown.

Although the eclipse will last for three hours, the best of the lunar pyrotechnics will only be visible for about 50 minutes.

I'm there! Rather in the hot tub watching, hopefully it's clear tonight!
