Don't Miss the Lunar Eclipse Mar 4

The China Post notes:

People in Taiwan can expect to see a lunar eclipse on the morning of March 4, or Lantern Festival on the Chinese lunar calendar, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday.

Sky watchers in Taiwan can witness a partial lunar eclipse, but will not be able to get a glimpse of the total eclipse which will occur after the moon has set. The lunar eclipse for Taiwan viewers will begin at 5:30 a.m. and will end out of sight at 9:30 a.m. Taiwan time. The moon will set in Taiwan around 6:20 a.m. with the total eclipse taking place at 6:44 a.m.

The next time Taiwan will see a lunar eclipse during the Lantern Festival will be on March 3, 2026.

Hi Michael, Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely be trying to see the Lunar eclipse.
Nice blog, btw. I've added it as a link on my blog (if you don't mind, otherwise I'll remove it if you prefer).
btw, how did you manage to use a picture as the background to your header in your blog?
