Hopefully weather at my location will be clear or mostly clear skies for this event, and for others who desire to see this total lunar eclipse. I used Starry Night Pro Plus 8 and Stellarium 0.22.1 for a detailed, sky chart view. Should be in a good location in SSE sky in Libra nearly 30 degrees up at my location. Many globular clusters will be visible in the area too at total lunar eclipse time. Scorpius, Ophiuchus, Sagittarius, along with other nebula and star clusters visible that evening and early Monday morning. If the weather is good, I plan to view using my 90-mm refractor telescope and 10-inch Newtonian.
