A spectacular Total Lunar Eclipse will happen on April 15, 2014, ‘very early in the morning”.
According to NASA, a Total Lunar Eclipse happens only a few times a year.
NASA disclosed that a Total Lunar Eclipse is when the sun earth and moon are perfectly aligned that the earth totally covers the sun from the moon. The Earth’s shadow would totally cover the moon.
The Total Lunar Eclipse would be clearly visible in North America and most of the United States from start to finish. The eclipse would begin at 2:00 am EDT and is expected to last for more than 3 hours.
For sky watchers, they can select a big open field where they can clearly watch the phenomenon. They are advised to wear warm clothing and take some snacks if they intend to watch the whole event. The next Total Lunar Eclipse that would be visible from the area would be in 2019, so don’t miss it.
