On February 20th, 2008, there will be a total lunar eclipse visible from North America, Europe, but the best view will be from Nort America actualy! So lucky you guys (and some other parts of the world). According to the NASA website, this is a rough schedule of what to expect (in Pacific Standard Time):
5:43 PM - Partial Eclipse Begins
7:01 PM - Total Eclipse Begins
7:26 PM - Mid-Eclipse
7:51 PM - Total Eclipse Ends
9:09 PM - Partial Eclipse Ends

I though i just might share this becuase i have a very bad lens only up to 55mm and i knw some ppl out there have som wonderfull lenses and can probably take amazing images of this
The Eclipse will be able to be seen in Oceania so thats a good thing to knw!
I knw that it the moon will reach it full eclips stage at 04:00 GMT+1 in europe for those ppl in this region.
its going to be an early morning, if u snaps some pix please post them here!
