HOW TO VIEW A LUNAR ECLIPSE

To prepare, make sure you convert the UT times to your local time.  Since the eclipse will happen on the night side of Earth, and depending on your season, you will need to consider the following:

 1.         Find a large area of the sky that will give you 2 – 3 hours of a clear viewing (no tall trees or buildings).

 2.         Bring warm clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, reclining chairs.

 3.         Bring equipment: cameras, binoculars and telescopes, red flash lights.

 4.         Don't forget snacks!

 

For general information on observing Lunar Eclipses, there are several good resources. See MrEclipse.com, Sky & Telescope's Observing and Photographing Lunar EclipsesAstronomy Magazine's How to Observe a Lunar Eclipse, and the NOAA Solar and Lunar Eclipse Page
