This is the latest news on the newest Lunar Eclipse!! Some facts:
1) This eclipse was on the Winter Solstice. December 21, 2010-- very RARE allignment between the two-- the last Lunar Eclipse that occured on the Winter Solstice was 372 YEARS AGO!! The next one is predicted to appear in 2094 (hopefully we'll live that long!!)
2) It is expected to turn a Coppery-red color. The moon isn't completely dark--it just gets dimmer.
3)...JUST WATCH THE VIDEO
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY=Here are some pictures of the eclipse I took during my walk to school. (and you thought I would actually stay up that late to see it?) in the picture, the coppery red moon can be seen JUST OVER THE HORIZON (IN NEW YORK, OF COURSE)! These pictures were taken in the early morning EST (eastern standard time), where the effects of the eclipse was still on the moon. Sorry about the bad details!
