Check which eclipses are visible in your location on this link.:
"Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are visible to half the world at the same time. This time around, North America is prime territory, but portions of the eclipse can be seen from parts of South America, Europe and Asia just before sunrise, and parts of Asia and the Pacific just after sunset."
"What will happen could sound sort of like this:
The moon will turn to blood as it aligns with Earth and sun
Then do so thrice more ere a year and a half is done,
'Tis not the herald of the apocalypses
Just the first of four total lunar eclipses.
In other words, get ready for an unusually beautiful moon to grace the night skies next week. There will be a total lunar eclipse Tuesday that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange, NASA says."

Depending upon where you live on the planet, a lunar eclipse will occur starting either late April 14 or in the early morning hours of April 15. NASA provides the times in Universal TIme (UT):
For viewers in North America, here's the approximate timing for viewers on the West Coast (PDT time zone):
10:58pm (Mon) partial lunar eclipse begins
12:07am (Tues) total lunar eclipse begins
12:47am (Tues) maximum lunar eclipse
1:25am (Tues) total lunar eclipse ends
2:33am (Tues) partial lunar eclipse ends
The moon will actually start to dim around 9:55 pm as the moon starts to enter the earth's penumbra, the dim edge of the earth's shadow, and it won't fully exit the penumbra until 3:36 am.
The moon will be very high in the sky during this time, and a program such as can help you plan shots at these times, to line up the moon with natural or man-made objects: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photopills/id596026805?mt=8&uo=4&at=10ldnC Here's an example of a time-lapse video I captured in 2011, where I aligned the moon in eclipse passing right past the tip of the Transamerica Building in San Francisco: http://youtu.be/UQ27YYsgLHs
I'm providing these old photos of mine from 2007 to show you that you can get decent results without needing the latest or most expensive DSLR camera. I captured these on a 10 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel XTi manufactured in 2006, and here are some notes I took afterwards:

“Majority of people find that nature is anything that walks and grows on planet Earth, astronomers have found that this nature stretches way beyond our atmosphere as far as we can see in to the Universe.”

Some times google is odd.
I swear I had a shark asking for hugs here not long ago.
Maybe some people found a way to false flag report my post and it actually got removed? Who knows but I didn't delete them.
Edit: I just couldn't see the other posts under viewing my profile as myself. Well got to make sure I check under viewing it what the public sees.
Still odd how I can't see all other posts I reposted under viewing as 'myself'.

" The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truth — never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities. Cleverly designed experiments are the key." -- "Wonder and Skepticism", Carl Sagan
I am not sure how to describe myself. I guess when it comes to politics I am independent (or apolitical), but sound more social liberal most of the time. My husband and I are US veterans. In the end though I don't believe in any particular government or anarchy, and I really don't like politics.
I respect science and religious views in the aspects respect is earned. I am not sure if the two should mix in most ways. As such in cases of human history in it becoming a disaster to do so.
I am an agender ( or gender neutral) grey asexual, sex positive, grey romantic. When I must identify other than agender I prefer to be referred as a tomboy.
I enjoy art of all sorts, and what may be considered nerdy or geeky things. Steam punk, cyber punk, and gothic subculture in general I find fascinating. Grey muzzle a bit too in intrests.
Mostly a bit of a determinist and possibly other times leaning toward Compatibilism when given such things as philosophy questions and debate.
Freethinking secular humanist, skeptic, agnostic atheist, and an apatheist as well.
I enjoy learning new things and exploring cultures.
Love the way that nature and the universe works even in all the chaos. The rest I think just gets complicated.
