Lunar Eclipse December 10 2011 Darkens Western U.S. Skies and turn moon to red

 

The last lunar eclipse for 2011 is said to happen today, December 11, 2011. So for those who are in the right place and in the right time this morning, you can view the Lunar Eclipse in the sky as early when you wake up from bed.

Lunar Eclipse will occur at around 6:00 am Pacific time. This is where the moon will be completely consumed by the earth’s shadow, according to some reports. Apparently, Michael Eckert, a senior branch forecaster with the National Weather Service said states in the western and northcentral United States will have the best view of the moon as it turns a dark, rusty red.

In addition, during Lunar eclipse, when the moon is completely consumed by Earth’s shadow — begins at 6:06 a.m. Pacific time Saturday, and ends at 6:57 a.m. Even on the Pacific coast, dawn will start to brighten the sky before the eclipse is over.

Meanwhile, for those who want to know if their place is the best place for a clearer view of the Lunar Eclipse 2011, clearer views will be from places like Hawaii, Alaska and Guam, where it will be the middle of the night, and from eastern Asia and Australia, where (remember, they’re on the other side of the International Date Line) it will be Saturday evening.

As a scientific report implied, a lunar eclipse takes place when the moon, following its orbit around us, passes directly behind Earth as seen from the sun. The lunar eclipse is an opposite of a solar eclipse, when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth.

Furthermore, if you happen to miss Saturday’s eclipse, there will be a partial one next June 4. There will not be a total lunar eclipse again until April 15, 2014. So for those who are in the right place, better plan ahead of time of seeing the moon as it shadowed the earth early this morning.
