I understand that tomorrow 14/6, there is to be a Total Lunar Eclipse, any chance you could bring us up to speed on this Snowcrash?.

It's about shadows and stuff.

And the moon goes dark orange.

Right, so is this a Total Eclipse or some other anomaly?. What's the best time to observe this and where should we look?.

This is the first I've heard of it.

My moon app says it a full Moon on the 15th called 'The Strawberry Moon' but it says nothing of an eclipse. Bl**d! useless app.

There are 3-4 a year (partial) eclipses a year.

I'm not going to google it 'cos you didn't answer your post 'Oh Wise One' or some such.

OK, I googled it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_2011_lunar_eclipse

The best place to view it is East Africa, Middle East and India.

It will be at it's greatest at 21:12:37 BST. So look east at Moon rise.
It starts 20:22:11 to 22:03:22 BST for totality, approx 1 hr 40 mins.

As usual, the British weather left me underwhelmed.

I didn't even bother to go out as it was totally overcast.  Sad
