Exciting news for all skywatchers

I thought I'd use this evening’s sunset update as an opportunity to alert/remind everyone of an exciting planetary event that will occur overnight this Monday into Tuesday: a total lunar eclipse - the first of a series four consecutive total eclipses – 

This series, called a tetrad, will occur over the next 2 years and will be visible from North America. Because the eclipse turns the moon red, it has been called a Blood Moon

It also coincides nicely with Passover and Tax day.
Biblical references to the Blood Moon  
Total eclipse times- various cities:
East coast 3AM (4/15/14)
West Coast Midnight tonight
