There will be a total eclipse of the moon on Tuesday, but unless you’re living in eastern South America, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Southern or Southeast Asia, Australia or floating in the Indian Ocean, you won’t see any of it.
Now, one person in a fine position to watch the eclipse is my old friend and regular WeatherBlog reader Jack Starmer, director and founder of HealthCare Nepal, who is currently leading a medical mission to that mountain republic.
He and his team should take a break from their work at 18:23 UT and watch the moon drift into the shadow of the Earth. The eclipse will become total at 19:22 UT, and end at 22:04 UT.
Should be a spectacular sight with the moonlight on the Himalayas.
For the rest of us, the next total lunar eclipse visible in full from the mid-Atlantic states will be on April 15, 2014.
