Viewing tonight’s total lunar eclipse is looking unlikely from many parts of the southwestern United States due to significant cloud cover. If there’s a break in the clouds and you are ordinarily up in the late evening, maybe you’ll catch a glimpse. For those on Mountain Standard Time, the eclipse begins at 11:33 p.m. tonight (Monday, December 20) with totality beginning after midnight at 12:41 a.m.
Below is a mosaic of photos captured during the last good lunar eclipse. For more information on this eclipse as well as future events check out www.mreclipse.com/LEdata/TLE2010Dec21/TLE2010Dec21.html
