Full Moon Rises with Lunar Eclipse & Saturn Today: How to Watch

Posted April 25, 2013 1:45 PM

From SPACE.com:

In a cosmic coincidence, the April full moon coincides with the first lunar eclipse of 2013 today, which will be primarily visible from Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Africa and Western Australia. But if you don't live in those locations, you can still watch the lunar eclipse live on SPACE.com beginning at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) today, courtesy of two free webcasts.

"In a cosmic coincidence, the April full moon coincides with the first lunar eclipse of 2013 today" ... be one helluva thing if the eclipse didn't coincide with a full moon!
