I wrote about the October 8, 2014 lunar eclipse in April
when it first started making the news.
What I had noticed at the time was that the eclipse would take place ~7:24 am.
Sunrise on October 8, 2014 will be at 6:49 am.
That alone could have been a damper.
The moon according to my charts would already have set, below the horizon, by then!
But you might see some shadow across the moon prior to 6:30 am.
(But I could be wrong on that and on the moon set time.)
Now, however, I discover that we will likely have THUNDERSTORMS in the morning!
That definitely will put paid to visibility.
Again I hope I am wrong.
If kids want to try and see it, by all means encourage them. Explain the weather.
But let them go out and look around. That alone is good.
