Partial Lunar Eclipse April 26, 2013
On the early morning of 26 April there there be a partial eclipse of the Moon. This is a very poor eclipse, with only a small bite take out of the Moon's northern edge. It is still worth getting up for though.
WA has the best view, while the east coast sees the eclipse in various stages of twilight, and may be quite difficult to see.
The eclipse starts at 5:52 am AEST (nautical twilight twilight), 5:22 am ACST and 3:52 am AWST.
Mid-eclipse is 6:07 am AEST (deep in twilight), 5:37 am ACST and 4:07 am AWST.

Well, I guess I can write it here !
It annoys b=me as much as smartphone OSs that use the Moon to indicate night time, when you can see the Moon in the day - of course only if you actually look !
I think that will have more effect than a complaint via the web page.
