Want China Times
Events are being held across Taiwan Saturday to observe a lunar eclipse set to take place
later in the day.
The National Museum of Natural Science in central Taiwan’s Taichung is carrying out events both at the museum itself and the Taichung Metropolitan Park, inviting stargazers to join a series of lectures and observations between 3pm and 9pm.
The eclipse will start before the moon is visible at around 6:04pm and last until 8:45pm, the museum said.
The moon will appear copper as it becomes fully obscured by the Earth’s shadow between 7:54pm and 8:06pm, it said, adding that it will be the first time since last October that a total lunar eclipse will be visible throughout Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
