A musical reminder of tonight’s full lunar eclipse!
Tonight, for the first time since 2011, folks in North America will get the chance to see a total lunar eclipse. It’s supposed to start in earnest around 2 AM on the east coast (11 PM west coast).
Unfortunately I think clouds will spoil the fun for me (and most people on the east coast). But I woke with this song stuck in my head and ended up recording it before I headed out for work with my phone. (My sincerest apologies to Bonnie Tyler)
You can find more detailed information about the eclipse here.
And if you miss it this time, good news: Another blood moon is forecast for October, and again next April.
The eclipse photo I use in the video was taken in 2011 by Fred Espenak (NASA Marshall Space Center).
Related to the last, but in musical form.
