First Total Lunar Eclipse of 2014

Aloha LUNAtics!
I’m so excited about the first Total Lunar Eclipse in a series of 4 Total Eclipses that will take place this year and in 2015.

Lunar Eclipse in Hawaii on 14 April 2014

MONDAY, APRIL 14, 2014 is when the eclipse starts for Maui. Start time is 7:58pm and ends at 11:33pm.

FOR ASTRONOMY CLUB MEMBERS ONLY (that’s you)…..please do not bring a bunch of friends or neighbors since La Perouse is small and there’s limited parking for Members.

7:30pm – 11:30pm
La Perouse Bay
Event is free but donations are always welcomed!

  • Bring a blanket, chair or lay on your car to enjoy the Moon passing thru the Earth’s shadow.
  • During totality, the Moon should turn a reddish color! I’m hoping to get some good photo shots of this!
  • Bring water, snacks and if you have some music to play that would be great.BE FLEXIBLE! If the weather is cloudy or rainy at La Perouse that night, I will travel to a place where it will be clear! Perhaps Kihei, Lahaina or UpCountry.

An email will be sent Monday around 3pm for a weather call.

Bring your scope, camera, binoculars, flashlight, etc.
I will have my 8” scope there and high powered binoculars.
