And while looking at the night sky this month...

Mars will CPA Earth at the closest it has been in six and a half years in the middle of April. Magnitude will compare with that of Sirius.

Well, somebody has to light the fuse on this so.... :) If you google "blood moon John Hagee" you'll get all kinds of information about his views on the supposed significance of this particular eclipse and next three blood moons coming up.

I took the 15th off and I've got my trusty ETX-125 all set to follow the moon through the sky that evening. Praying for clear skies...

Extreme tides often accompany full moons, which is what you need for a lunar eclipse... Btw, best views are with medium power binocs rather than telescopes...kind of gives a 3d effect. (Retired astronomy teacher). Lots of clouds here in northeast...too bad.
On another note...just took assignment of a new slip on a floating dock, well protected marina.on Long Island south shore..Whoo hoo! Can't splash til 5/10 but soon enough...sure beats the snow we've endured....
