Next Lunar Eclipse Is Less Than 13 Hours Away!


This is just a reminder that the next lunar eclipse visible from Earth is happening in less than thirteen hours. Click here to find out when it will be visible from your location (http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-april-4). 

From either a scientific or artistic point of view, this is an exciting event that has captivated the eyes of skywatchers in different civilizations for centuries and will be the third of a tetrad (http://naturenimbus.blogspot.ca/2014/10/part-two-of-four-lunar-eclipses-in.html). This will also be the shortest lunar eclipse of the century so there's no time for a snooze if you're in an early-morning region.

This is one of those special occasions when being down on Earth is one of the most inspiring places you could be.
