Skywatchers await lunar eclipse

Skywatchers in Australia, Asia and North America are gearing up for a total lunar eclipse on Saturday.
This is the second total lunar eclipse this year and the last until 2014. This type of eclipse occurs when the Earth casts its shadow over the Moon.

The shadow starts falling at 11:33 GMT and ends after 17:30 GMT. The eclipse will last 51 minutes eight seconds.
