NASA Science News
It's déjŕ vu all over again. For the third time in less
than a year, sky watchers in the United States can see a
total eclipse of the Moon.
The action begins at 3:16 AM Pacific Daylight Time on
the morning of April 4th when
the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of
Earth’s shadow. For the next hour and 45 minutes,
Earth's shadow will move across the lunar disk,
ultimately swallowing the entire Moon at 4:58 AM PDT.
On Saturday morning, April 4th, sky watchers in the USA
can see a brief but beautiful total eclipse of the Moon.
