Lunar eclipse April 15, Blood Moon rising
http://www.techtimes.com/articles/5372/2...ril-15.htm

"The total lunar eclipse that will happen April 15 will occur early in the morning, around 3:06 a.m. EDT. The eclipse will last a total of 78 minutes and will end at 4:24: a.m. EDT. Since a total lunar eclipse is expected, moon gazers may be treated to a "blood moon," in which the moon will appear to be dyed a deep shade of red. Since direct light from the sun is blocked off by the Earth, the moon only receives light refracted from the Earth's atmosphere. This phenomenon makes the moon appear red or dark orange."

I love this stuff.

That's frakking awesome! I hope we don't have clouds that night. It's been a while since I've been able to see a good eclipse.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Last time I watched one I was disappointed. I was little though and I didn't like being woken up so early. I don't remember it being very impressive. I might give it a second chance this time.

Whoops, just noticed it won't be visible here. Oh well.

Sounds pretty cool. Since you are in charge of setting up multiple sunset cruises in a day, could you possibly make this eclipse happen earlier? 3 am is just to brutal of a time for me to be up.
