Lunar eclipse

(photo of 2007 lunar eclipse in Australia from Peter Campbell via Wikipedia)

There's a total lunar eclipse tonight! The awesome folks from the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers are going to be hanging out at the Randall Museum tonight to watch the event and chat about all things lunar.

From their website:

Partial eclipse begins at sundown - telescopes available to public.
Total eclipse begins at 7:00 pm
Total eclipse ends at 7:51 pm
Public lecture on "Moonology" at 8:00 pm
Partial eclipse ends at 9:09 pm

Bad weather cancels the viewing, but the lecture (inside) will go on regardless of conditions outside.
