Total Lunar Eclipse

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.

Earth’s shadow will totally engulf the Moon from 10:00 to 10:52 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, or 7:00 to 7:52 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. The partial phases of the eclipse last for about an hour and a quarter before and after totality.

When is the next total lunar eclipse visible from the America's?
Not until December 20–21, 2010.

I was able to watch it as well. Loved the reddish hue. Saturn looked brilliant as well, just off to the side.

I got to see it! It was cloudy until about 20 minutes after the start and then clear all the way through I dragged out the small telescope and even let my daughters stay up to watch it all the way through. Saturn is even tilted just enough to get a bit of seperation in the rings. Way cool
