Total lunar eclipse February 20: Americas, western Europe

Filed under
Sci/Tech

On the evening of Wednesday, February 20, 2008, the greatest beauty (mid-point) of the total lunar eclipse will occur at approximately 10:26 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on the east coast of the Americas, 7:26 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on the west coast, and 03:26 Universal Time (UT).

The entire total lunar eclipse is visible from South America and most of North America.

Skygazers along the west coast of North America will miss the early stages of the partial eclipse because it begins before Moon rise. Alaskans will see moonrise during totality but bright evening twilight will make it difficult to view the event.

Citizens of western Europe and northwest Africa will also be able to observe the entire eclipse.

So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped. Read more
