"During the period of totality, from 10.24pm to 11.58pm, the Moon will only be illuminated by light filtered through the Earth's atmosphere."

Our plan here is, if the skies are a bit clear, to head out to a pub further away from the cities to have a nice view. If the skies are nasty we might end up playing "chase the hole in the clouds"
