Default Lunar eclipse live online!

Hello All,

The “triple-Moon event”—a blue Moon (the second full Moon this month), Super Moon (full Moon at perigee, its closest point to Earth), and a total lunar eclipse—will begin shortly. The Penumbral phase of the eclipse will begin today at 5:51 AM EST (10:51 GMT), and you can follow NASA’s live coverage starting from 5:30 AM EST (10:30 GMT). Below are links to several websites that will carry live coverage of the lunar eclipse:

The left-side limb of the Moon is just beginning to darken, so it’s entering the Earth’s umbra (see: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwMDvPCGeE0 ). There have been some brief, thin, scudding clouds in the NASA TV video, but it's mostly crystal-clear. In the event that their view becomes literally overcast (I don't think it's likely, but it could occur), they have been switching the view from the Griffith Observatory to the Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base and back again, and other observatories and/or planetariums are probably live-streaming the lunar eclipse as well; the Google citations link below (and in the first thread posting above) contains links to many other eclipse-pertinent websites and webpages.

...And Luna, with all but a sliver of her disc immersed in the umbra, has turned red (see: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwMDvPCGeE0 )!
