The Griffith Observatory will be streaming a partial (near total) lunar eclipse online from 22:00 Thursday 18 November to 4:05 19 November.
Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U079_8l8SNM for an online broadcast (or see above).
The Observatory does not hold public screenings and will not operate during the broadcast. The observatory will broadcast the eclipse live, weather permitting.
According to EarthSky.com, this is an exceptionally deep partial eclipse with an eclipsed eclipse magnitude of 0.9742.
“In other words, according to the article on the website, 97% of the Moon will be covered by the dark shadow of the Earth. “With a thin strip of the moon in direct sunlight at maximum eclipse, the rest of the moon should take on the characteristic red colors of a total lunar eclipse.”
If the sky is clear, the eclipse should be visible to the naked eye from anywhere in southern California, according to Griffith Observatory officials.
It is safe to observe a lunar eclipse without any eye protection. You don’t need a telescope to see a lunar eclipse. Just go outside and look south.
A time-lapse version of the lunar eclipse channel is to be available on the Griffith Observatory YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/GriffithObservatory) at 6am on Friday.
