Malaysian will have the chance to view a partial lunar eclipse on 8th September 2006. Although the whole event lasted for more than 4 hours beginning from 12.42am, the best time to view it is around 2.51am, when maximum eclipse occur.
As it is only a partial eclipse, only part of the Moon will be block. A tiny part but still apparent to the naked eye.
A special observation session will be held in USM on that morning. However, I'll probably observer from my observatory at Balik Pulau.
If clear, do expect to see some images on the next day
