Lovers of astronomy should wake up early on Saturday, April 4th, as the first total lunar eclipse of 2015 should be visible throughout Costa Rica and most of Latin America.
According to the U.S. space agency NASA, the eclipse will begin at 4:15 a.m., reaching total eclipse by 5:58 a.m.
Forecasters are predicting favorable viewing weather for the event.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow, known as its umbra. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned nearly exactly, with the Earth in the middle.
The next lunar eclipse, also a total eclipse, will occur on September 28th.
