Total Lunar Eclipse of March 3rd, 2007

On March 3rd, 2007, a total lunar eclipse took place with very comfortable timing for Western Europe: starting at about 9.30pm local time, maximum eclipse right after midnight, with the last contact with Earth’s umbra around two o’ clock in the morning. The map below shows all parameters for the event. (Please note that all times in this article, except for the map from NASA, are in Central European Time, or GMT+1h).

I made it! (My first astronomy article)

Here it comes. My first astronomy article ever will be published in the upcoming March 2007 of the Italian Coelum magazine. This is really good news to me.
