Rain and the eclipse

One of the disadvantages of living in a nice, rain-soaked climate like Connecticut’s is that it often clouds over when there is something neat to see in the night sky.

So early Tuesday morning, when there will be a total lunar eclipse around 3 a.m.  there is a a good chance the sky will be filled with clouds for Tuesday’s stormy weather.

But luckily, we’re at the beginning of a tetrad   – a rare occurrence where there will be four lunar eclipses, each spaced about 6 months apart.

The next one, which we’ll also be able to see is in October 8. So if it rains Tuesday, cross you fingers and hope for some  nice dry fall  weather
