Lunar Eclipse Coming This Weekend

For those of you interested in such things, this Saturday morning there will be a lunar eclipse as the moon sets in the west. It should begin about 5:45 a.m. and continue through 7:00 a.m.

If the skies are clear, this means the moon will turn totally red or gray as it passes through the earth's shadow. According to my astronomer uncle (who is the reason I know such things as this), it should be beautiful. The weather projections for Saturday right now are vague, but they say mostly sunny with some overcast.

So... if you feel like seeing the moon go red, this Saturday morning is your morning. Get your cameras ready and enjoy :)
