Stargazers Rejoice: Bay Area Total Lunar Eclipse Wednesday
Mark your calendars, stargazers: Wednesday evening (7:01 PM to be precise) the Bay Area will be treated to a total lunar eclipse, when the moon crawls through the earth's shadow. The celestial show is slated to end around 8:00 PM and scientists advise die-hards to move inland for the best viewing because low coastal clouds could partially obscure the eclipse. Right now, cloudy skies and rain are in the forecast for Wednesday night, but if there's a clear view, it's going to be cool:
"All in one view you'll have the moon framed on one side by Saturn and on the other by the bright star Regulus," said Ben Burress, an astronomer at Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland.
