There was, as there should have been, plenty of excitement about the
April 15, 2014,

‘Blood Red‘ Moon Lunar Eclipse — the first in the so called
tetrad‘, of lunar eclipses over the next eighteen months:
October 8, 2014April 4, 2015 (Danielle’s birthday)
and September 28, 2015.

Well here is the official NASA Chart for the October 8, 2014 lunar eclipse.

Well given we are in the U3 region — it looks promising, right?

Alas WRONG.

The eclipse around U3, as you can see from the ‘Eclipse Contacts’ table at ‘top right’ above map,
occurs at 11:24:00 UT(C) [i.e., good ol’ GMT].

On October 8, 2014 we will be -4 hours from UTC [GMT].

That puts us at 7:24 AM!

As it clearly states on the map — Eclipse at MoonSet.

We might see some. But the moon will be very low in the sky too
— and we in New Hampshire have a few trees.

So just a heads up.

I don’t think it is promising.
West Coast again will get perfect viewing conditions!
