For those of us in Alberta, we are in one of the better positions to view a full lunar eclipse in its entirety, on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, if the weather cooperates. 

A lunar eclipse is when the moon passes through the earth's shadow and unlike a solar eclipse can last for hours. 

The length of a lunar eclipse gives people a larger time window by which to view it. 

For folks in the Cochrane area, the timeline is as follows:

2:09 a.m. partial eclipse begins

3:16 a.m. total eclipse begins

3:59 a.m. mid-eclipse

4:42 a.m. total eclipse ends

5:49 a.m. partial eclipse ends

The forecast is predicting possible flurries early Tuesday morning but hopefully, there will be a break in the clouds to view the event.
