    Here's a webpage with animations of planetary and stellar motion, also of the lunar eclipse happening in the night of Sat. 27 to Sun. to
    28th of September 2015, this webpage is part of Spaceweather
    http://shadowandsubstance.com/



    "Peak eclipse will be at 2:47 am UT on September 28th—so, 10:47 pm ET on Sunday, September 27th. If you’re in the eastern United States,
    that’s good news! You should be able to see the eclipse just fine. The moon will start darkening at 8:11 pm Eastern time, and it will start to
    pass through the Earth’s dark umbral shadow at 9:07 pm. It’ll be completely shaded for about an hour starting around 10 pm (the last total
    eclipse, on April 4, lasted for a mere five minutes)"

    For the upcoming lunar eclipse I went on Spaceweather and found some interesting apps. Celestia is a free download, present in the link below.
    Celestia is an application for real-time 3D visualization of space, with a detailed model of the solar system, over 100,000 stars, more than
    10,000 galaxies, and an extension mechanism for adding more objects:
