On Wednesday night the 8th October 2014, there’s a fantastic Total Lunar Eclipse occurring at a great time for evening viewing.
The partial stages start at ~8:30pm NSW time (AEDST), with Totality starting at 9:25pm. Mid-Totality is at 9:55pm. Look East in the evening – you can’t miss it, and it’s perfectly safe to observe and easy to photograph.
The image above is from the last Total Lunar Eclipse, in December 2011. Check out all of my Lunar Eclipse posts and images.
Lunar Eclipses are completely safe to observe – no filters or glasses needed! Enjoy the view and if you take some photos, feel free to post them on my Facebook Page!
