First Total Lunar Eclipse of 2014
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.
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.
