    • Total Lunar Eclipse - Centennial Observatory
      • November 8, 2022  1:45 AM - 6:00 AM

        Total lunar eclipse  Eclipse begins (unnoticably) with penumbral phase at 1:02 AM. Subtle darkening of Moon's upper left edge begins leading up to first partial phase at 2:09 AM, when a small, dark, growing "bite" appears at upper left edge. Totality, when the moon appears dark reddish-orange, is from 3:17 to 4:42 AM, with maximum eclipse at 4:00 AM. After 4:42 AM a small, bright, growing sliver appears at upper right edge. Last dark "bite" disappears from lower edge at 5:49 AM, signalling the end of partial phases, followed by a subtle, slowly diminishing darkening of the lower edge as the last penumbral phase proceeds through twilight.  Telescope viewing of the moon and other targets, weather permitting, free admission.
