Aug. 16, 2008 Partial Lunar Eclipse


On August 16, 2008, viewers in Europe, Africa, South America, and Australia will be treated to a partial Lunar eclipse. This is the second lunar eclispe of 2008. Viewers in Africa and Europe will be able to watch the whole show. Stargazers in South America will see the eclipse ending just after sunset, while Australian viewers will be able to see the eclipse just before sunrise. The timetable for the August 16th, 2008 partial lunar eclipse is as follows:

18:23 UTC -- Moon enters penumbra.
19:35 UTC -- Moon enters umbra.
21:40 UTC -- Maximum.
22:44 UTC -- Moon exits umbra.
23:57 UTC -- Moon exits penumbra.

penumbra -- the lighter section of the Earth's shadow.
umbra -- the darker section of the Earth's shadow.
maximum -- The darkest the moon will become during this eclipse.

All times are UTC. To find your local time, add or subtract your local offset from UTC. For more info, see here: Time Zone Converter

Unfortunately, I won't get to see this eclipse at all, nor will anyone living in North America.

Clear skies!

She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
