Total Lunar Eclipse - 16 May 2022 was created by flt158
Hello everyone, especially Michael. 

Would you recommend a location for the upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse?
It is due to occur during the early hours of next Monday morning 16th May. 
The Moon will be in Libra, and therefore very low to the south western to west horizon. 

Would the Sugarloaf car park be any good? 

Of course we will have to check out the weather. 
Clear skies will be vital for this event. 

Best regards from Aubrey.

'Rain spreading into the south-west before dawn'... :(

You might be luckier farther north.

The car park above lough Dan might be better given that we will need to see down to the horizon.
The other option would be to walk up the Sugarloaf a bit to gain some altitude.

The weather doesn't look too good though.

Thank you for your reply, Michael. 
It's quite encouraging!

I vaguely remember where Lough Dan is in Wicklow from many years ago. 
Of course I will phone you for the directions. 

But in the meantime, we will all keep an eye on the weather for the early Monday morning.

Very best regards from Aubrey.

I had a look at my map of Wicklow and if my maths are correct from the Sugarloaf, we will have a horizon of 3 degrees around where the Moon will set on Monday Morning.

Weather still looking bad though.

Hello all. 

Because there is too much rain coming after midnight, I will not be observing the Total Lunar Eclipse. 

I would like to thank Michael and Finbarr for their comments. 

There is going to be a lot of rain until Thursday. 
Maybe then will we have some clear skies, 

Best regards from Aubrey.
