Last Lunar Eclipse Until 2010

The skies are currently clear over Middle Village and Maspeth and if weather conditions remain the same it will be a perfect opportunity to view the Lunar Eclipse.

According to NASA, on Wednesday evening, February 20th, the full Moon over the Americas will turn a delightful shade of red and possibly turquoise, too. It's a total lunar eclipse—the last one until Dec. 2010.

The Sun goes down. The Moon comes up. You go out and look at the sky. Observing the eclipse is that easy. Maximum eclipse, and maximum beauty, occurs at 10:26 pm EST (7:26 pm PST).
