Total lunar eclipse: Free fun & education

This isn't an shopping deal, but watching an eclipse is a completely free, fun family activity. :-)

Tomorrow night (Wednesday, February 20), there is a complete lunar eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 7:43 P.M. Central Time (8:43 Eastern, 6:43 Mountain, 5:43 Pacific). Seventy-eight minutes later, the moon will be completely eclipsed, and will remain so for fifty-one minutes.

The eclipse will be over at 11:09 P.M. Central Time (12:09 Eastern, 10:09 Mountain, 9:09 Pacific), but may still be slightly visible for about twenty minutes.

For more details, check out this USA Today Viewer's Guide.

Thanks for posting about this! My kids would love to see it!! Too bad it probably will be cloudy due to snow showers in West Mi for me to see it!!
