Authors: Oleg S. Ugolnikov, Igor A. Maslov, Stanislav A. Korotkiy

The paper contains the preliminary result description of the photometric observations of the Moon surface during the total lunar eclipse of June, 15, 2011 conducted in southern Russia and Ukraine in three narrow spectral bands with effective wavelengths equal to 501, 673, and 867 nm. The photometric maps of umbra are built, the radial dependencies of relative brightness are compared with the theoretical ones for gaseous atmosphere. Dark anomalies of umbra are shown and related with the aerosol air pollution of the definite regions above the surface of Earth.

Lunar Eclipse 15/06/2011

Parece que hoje o eclipse lunar histórico confundiu muitos eclipse com um eclipse solar.
Um eclipse lunar ocorre quando a Lua passa por trás da terra, para que a terra blocos caminho dos raios do sol para a lua. Isso só pode ocorrer quando o Sol, a Terra ea Lua estão alinhados exatamente, ou muito perto assim, com a Terra no meio.

People braved the cold at sites around Adeliade, such as Windy Point and the Mt Lofty Summit, to catch a glimpse of the spectacle.
The moon turned a blood-red colour as it entered the Earth's shadow in the longest eclipse in more than a decade before dawn today.
Stargazers and astronomers in Western Australia had the best view in the country, with cloud partially blocking the eclipse for many in Adelaide.
