Wyoming Doesn’t Really Care About Tonight’s Lunar Eclipse
A partial lunar eclipse happens tonight, Aug 7/8, 2017. Why doesn’t Wyoming seem to care? The number one reason may be that it can’t be viewed in North America. And that’s a good enough reason for most of us not to care at all, what with a solar event that is coming here on Aug. 21.
Never mind that lasts only two and a half minutes, and tonight’s event last many times longer. Did you know that a solar eclipse happens about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse? On some occasions, a lunar eclipse can both precede and follow a solar eclipse.
