Anyone staying up late or getting up early for the blood moon?

The total lunar eclipse—when the Moon is in its deepest shadow—will only last for about 15 minutes, so it’s important to plan ahead and know the exact time for your particular observing area. The chart above will help, with the row “Total begins” signifying the start time of the lunar eclipse sequence. So for people in PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), the eclipse is set to start at 4:11 a.m. local time on the morning of May 26. For people along the eastern coast of the U.S. and Canada, a partial eclipse will be visible between 4:48 a.m. and 5:16 a.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time).

Slept through it. It would have been right on the horizon for me. Would have required driving to see it or getting on the roof. We have lotsa trees all around us.

Id rather sleep.

I saw the full moon but can't get up that early, unless I'm still awake from the night before.

I find this recent sexing-up of regular moon events to be slightly irritating, and I say that as someone who was always keen on astronomy.

Now every full moon has a headline name (“flower moon”? Really?), lunar eclipses have become “blood moons”, and a barely noticeable 14% visual enlargement of the moon during perigee (which happens 3 or 4 times each year) is a “super moon”. And you can concatenate these into amazing mashups, like a “blood flower supermoon”.

If you missed this one, you won’t have to wait long to make up for it; lunar eclipses happen two to five times a year.

Now, solar eclipses? That’s something to see.

Especially if you don’t want to see anything clearly again!
