Total Lunar Eclipse Was a Treat on Saturday Night

Skywatchers from Alaska to Eastern Europe were treated to a total lunar eclipse on Saturday night, when the Moon dipped behind the Earth’s shadow. Chunks of the Moon began to disappear at 2332 Universal Time (6:32 pm EST), and then it turned a coppery red about two hours later. And then four hours after it started, the eclipse was over. Many observers said it was one of the brightest eclipses they’d seen in recent years. If you missed this show, don’t worry, there are two more lunar eclipses coming in 2004. Then a break; there won’t be another total lunar eclipse visible until 2007.
