Are you Ready for the Eclipse?

 

"If you live in North America, the overnight hours of April 14-15 will be ones to gape at the sky. Mars comes to within 57.4 million miles of our planet, making its closest approach to us since January 2007, and North America will have a ringside seat to see a total lunar eclipse. The total eclipse begins at 3:07 a.m. EDT and will last seventy-eight minutes."  Joe Rao, Natural History, April 2014.
