Lunar Eclipse Tonight - Late Monday, Early Tuesday April 14-15, 2014

Starts 12:30 a.m; peaks 1:46 a.m.; emerges 3 a.m. MDT. Photo credit: NASA.gov

A couple of times a year, the celestial bodies align so that the earth's shadow obscures the moon. The shadow will move across the moon starting just after midnight Mountain Time. The eclipse will be full around 1:46 a.m. and then the moon will emerge from shadow about 3 a.m. The moon will turn a deep reddish color during the eclipse. Lunar eclipses are safe to look at directly. You're looking at the moon, not the sun. It can be viewed with the naked eye or binoculars.
