Lunar Eclipse Over Asheville Tonight

Total lunar eclipse tonight...


Partial eclipse start time: 8:43 p.m.
Total eclipse start time: 10:01 p.m.
Total eclipse ends: 10:51 p.m.
Partial eclipse ends: 12:09 a.m.

The best watching, which depending on conditions might include the moon turning spooky orange-red, will be during the total eclipse period, from 10:01 to 10:51. All times given are local.

This is the last total lunar eclipse visible over Asheville until December 2010.

Cross your fingers for a clear night with no rain...

I live-blogged it here, and posted some photos this morning here after I had some time to process them.

Right after the eclipse began, the clouds moved in and ruined the rest of the show.
