04/04/2015 – Yay, it was finally clear for a lunar eclipse!

April 4, 2015

Well, of course the sky was clear for this eclipse.  This is the third of a tetrad of lunar eclipses visible from the US.  For this one we in Michigan are located too far east to see totality, although it was the first to be clear for.  The image below shows that we just ran out of sky.

The last eclipse of the tetrad will be on the evening (for us) of September 27th 2015.
