The Total Eclipse Burn of the Man 07 in HD

Depending on where you live, the total lunar eclipse will be taking place on either the 20th of December or 21st of December, 2010

A rare event will be taking place late night on 20th December and on the early morning of 21st December 20, 2010, as a full lunar eclipse will be taking place. The full lunar eclipse will also coincide with the winter solstice, which is the shortest night of the year and it falls on the 21st of December.

The full lunar eclipse will be visible to the people of North and Central America, and if the weather permits it, then it is surely going to be a great astronomical spectacle.

The next full lunar eclipse will take place in 2014, so whoever can stay up late to witness the spectacle should not miss the chance to see it.

The total lunar eclipse will take about 3.5 hours to complete and it will begin at 11:41 pm PST tonight.
