There will be a total lunar eclipse tomorrow (28 Aug 2007). Looks like a big event with discovery channel doing live streaming of the eclipse. Cool huh?
We will not be able to see the entire eclipse in Singapore. But if we are lucky, we should be able to see the total eclipse for roughly 10 minutes and see the ending partial eclipse.
Below are the timing to take note if you want to view the eclipse.
Partial Eclipse Starts: 1552hr
Total Eclipse Starts: 1837hr
Singapore Moon Rise: 1910hr
Total Eclipse Ends: 1922hr (2 degree above ground level)
Partial Eclipse Ends: 2023hr (17 degree above ground level)
(Note: All timing is in Singapore time. GMT +8)
The moon will rise at 1910hr on 28 Aug. The total eclipse will end around 1922hr and we will see the moon slowly get out of the eclipse between 1922hr to 2023hr. Try looking towards the eastern horizon tomorrow evening.
Oh ya…. and pray for a cloud-less evening.
