Total Lunar Eclipse Jan. 20, 2019
TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE SUNDAY, JANUARY 20
Maui will get to experience the first Total Lunar Eclipse of the year on Sunday, January 20, 2019
The NASA page says Jan. 21 because they report eclipses using Universal Time UT which is 10 hours ahead of Maui.
On Sunday the 20th, the Moon will be rising in the east around 6:00pm while in eclipse! Should be cool.
Look to the east! Totality happens at 7:12pm and Moon should appear orangish.
Here are the times of the eclipse in HST Hawaii Standard Time and Universal Time UT
Heather may have a gathering to view this and will be in touch. Hope you get to see it!!! …… Becky Sydney
