Total Lunar Eclipse Tomorrow

Tomorrow night will be the first total lunar eclipse of the year over North America.  The next one will not be until December 2010.  Naturally it will probably be cloudy here.  I will definitely keep checking outside but I don’t expect to see it.

A lunar eclipse is when the moon moves into the Earth’s shadow.  Once the moon is fully in the Earth’s shadow it turns red due to the atmosphere of the Earth.
