Lowell Observatory To Provide Live Coverage Of Tuesday’s Lunar Eclipse On Its YouTube Channel

Lowell Observatory is hosting a free, online program regarding the lunar eclipse that’s set to take place early Tuesday morning. During a lunar eclipse, Earth’s shadow consists of two parts. The penumbra is the lighter, outside portion of the shadow, which is imperceptible to most casual observers. The umbra is the darker, central part of Earth’s shadow. Its appearance on the Moon’s surface is far more prominent and indicates the beginning of the more visible portion of a lunar eclipse. The penumbra stage will begin at 1:02 a.m., with the total eclipse beginning at 3:16 a.m. and ending at 4:41 a.m. Lowell’s coverage of the event will end at 5 a.m. Early birds can watch the coverage on Lowell Observatory’s YouTube channel.
