Total Lunar Eclipse, 10th December, 2011
Permalink  
 


Waking up before sunrise can be tough to do, especially on a weekend.  On Saturday, Dec. 10th, you might be glad you did.  A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible in the early morning skies of western Northern America.
The action begins around 4:45 am Pacific Standard Time when the red shadow of Earth first falls across the lunar disk.  By 6:05 am Pacific Time, the Moon will be fully engulfed in red light. This event - the last total lunar eclipse until 2014 - is visible from the Pacific side of North America, across the entire Pacific Ocean to Asia and Eastern Europe
