Saturday April 4th

Don't forget !
The Saturday before Easter.
We will see a lunar eclipse.
They call it a penumbral, not to be confused with a total lunar eclipse.
It will start around 6:04 am, so set your alarm for 6.
It's going to last about 45 minutes, as the moon goes below our horizon.
It's usually difficult to see, as it's really a subtle shadow on the moon.
Some may not be able to see the shadowing.

About a third of all lunar eclipse are penumbral.
The moon has the be full, and the sun, earth, and moon aligned in a somewhat a straight line.
The earth will cast a shadow on the full moon.
I'll be watching !
