June 21, 2010 (San Diego’s East County) – In the early morning hours on Saturday, June 26, sky watchers in our region can see a partial eclipse of the moon, which is visible across much of North America, South America and Asia. 

 

You're also invited to join syndicated “Stargazer” columnist Dennis Mammana on a lunar eclipse campout June 25-26 in the Anza-Borrego Desert. Reservations are required—and past stargazing campouts have sold out quickly.

 

The eclipse will begin as the moon enters the Earth’s dark shadow at 3:17 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The eclipse will reach maximum at 4:38 a.m. PDT when about half of the moon will be engulfed in shadow, ending at around 6:00 a.m. PDT.  No filters are needed to view this event!
