LUNAR ECLIPSE TONIGHT: VIEWING CONDITIONS IN WINNIPEG:
Less than 12 hours to go until the lunar eclipse. See yesterday's post for the times and our archives for this month and last for more information. The viewing conditions tonight promise to be good despite an extreme windchill of -41 (actual low -28). According to the Environment Canada weather office there will only be a few clouds. The Clear Dark Sky website predicts better conditions than they did yesterday. According to that site there will be no cloud cover until about 11 pm. That will probably come from the west, and thgus it shouldn't interfer with the eclipse. The transparency will be above average, and the general "seeing" will be average. Happy viewing. More later tonight.
