Lunar Eclipse At Our Part Of The World - 15 June 2011

Monday, June 20, 2011
It was quite an event as the whole neighbourhood was out to witness the lunar eclipse last Wednesday, 15 June 2011.

According to the radio, this lunar eclipse was the first of 2011 and was one of the longest eclipse in several years, lasting 108 minutes in totality. The lunar eclipse started from 20h22 and turned red (at its peak) at 22h13. The moon turned back to normal from 0h03 midnight.

Here are some pics taken by my daughter while the whole thing unravelled:




We were quite lucky that although it was chilly and in winter, the skies were clear and the moon was visible that night.
