    Aloha Totality Troopers!

    October 7, 2014 is another TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE seen from Maui!
    This will be number 2 out of 4 TLEs happening back to back to back to back!  hee, hee, hee.
    We sure do live in exciting times!
    You can see on the map below that Hawaii will have the BEST VIEW!!! Yay.
    The Maui Astronomy Club doesn’t have a site chosen yet where to observe because
    it is all dependent on the weather.  Possibly Haleakala?  Or a beach area that’s cloud free?
