The Total Lunar Eclipse is today !!!

We have talked about it a lot --

And now the time has finally arrived.

Be sure to check it out if you are in the path of Totality or nearby.

But be sure to wear safe glasses.

If you don't have safe glasses, do NOT look directly at the event while it is happening.

Instead use an alternate method such as the pinhole in the paper that we discussed previously in the Monday, July 3, 2017 DIT.

Or make a pinhole in a box -- as we have also discussed previously.

Or watch it on the NASA TV channel or the NASA website.

Whichever way you view the eclipse

The Click through today will, among other things, show the path where the totality occurs and the approximate times, etc. to be viewing.
