Blood moon tonight (by WalkSoftly)

"" For most U.S. states east of the Mississippi
River, tonight's total lunar eclipse will likely
turn out to be a total bust, while in contrast,
much of the central and western United States
will likely get a fine view of the "blood moon"
in all its brilliance.
The first total lunar eclipse of 2014 occurs in
the overnight hours tonight and will be visible
across most of North America, South America,
Hawaii and parts of Alaska. Depending on
your location, it begins either late tonight or
in the wee hours of Tuesday, but as with every
skywatching event, you can only see it if
Mother Nature cooperates.
Tonight's lunar eclipse runs from 12:53 a.m.
EDT (0453 GMT) to about 6 a.m. EDT (1000
GMT). [How to Watch Tonight's Total Lunar
Eclipse]
Along the U.S. East Coast, a slow-moving
cold front stretching from western New York
State south-southwest into the central Gulf of
Mexico is likely to bring considerable
cloudiness to much of the eastern-third of the
nation. Generally speaking, anywhere east of a
line extending from Sault Ste-Marie, Mich. to
Paducah, Ky. to Baton Rouge, La. will have
poor sky conditions for getting even a fleeting
glimpse of the darkening moon during the
predawn hours of Tuesday.
The exception might be inland sections of
central and south Florida where the clouds
may be thin enough to allow for some
visibility of the shady lunar drama.
Showers and scattered thunderstorms — a few
possibly strong and gusty — could bring
as much as one-quarter to one-half inch of
rain across parts of the Ohio and Tennessee
River Valleys, with as much as an inch over
the Florida Panhandle, while snow will fall
over parts of northwest Ohio and Michigan.
Over the central and western United States,
high pressure over the plains states is
expected to bring mainly fair skies. However a
cold front draped over the Pacific Northwest
into northern California, could bring some
cloudiness that may hinder the view. Near and
along the coast of Washington State, spotty
showers could fall, but for the most part, the
western two-thirds of the United States will be
dry, tranquil and perfect for viewing tonight's
moon show.""
