Hi Steve.

According to the attached document from NASA, it appears to me as if th e
eclipse will occur one hour earlier that the times that you quoted.  Am I
reading it correctly?
The truth is in the starlight.

For those interested enough to brave the early morning, tomorrow there will be
a lunar eclipse.  It will begin about 3:16.  Totality will begin at 5:58 and
last about 5 minutes.  These times are local.  Dawn will arrive before the Moon
is completely out of the shadow
