NASA Science News

Total Eclipse of the Moon

  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.
