 Total Lunar Eclipse of 2014 April 14-15
 in Chile

The Atacama desert is one of the best location to observe this total lunar eclipse from. The Atacama has a lot to offer from its dark and clear sky to the major observatories and the mineral landscape, which is why I’ll be there. In certain areas, Hawaii for example, part of the eclipse will occur on April 14th at the beginning of the night before unwinding on April 15th.
With my Lunar Eclipse Maestro software, you can know much more about each lunar eclipses and control your digital cameras to automate the photography part in order to fully enjoy the eclipse visually.

The following total lunar eclipse occurred on 2014 October 8 and I was located in the US Southwest to optimize the weather conditions.
