Total Lunar Eclipse

June 16, 2011!

A group of friends decided to amaze themselves and witness the total lunar eclipse which the experts say that it will take another 30 years to witness the same phenomenon...

With the aid of a digital camera (wish I had myself a DSLR, well I will have soon), we rush on the streets as early as 1:30 AM to to see the full moon turns into reddish color. It is really amazing!

According to experts, as shown on the picture below, the full moon turns red as it passes through the umbra or the full shadow of the earth caused when the Sun, Earth and Moon aligns as Earth as the center.

The eclipse actually lasted from 2:00 AM until 4:00 AM.

This is not much but try to enjoy these pictures we've taken during the eclipse ;-)

Once every 30 years? We're so glad to witness such phenomenon, the universe is really such a mystery...

We've add another picture taken from the net... Enjoy ;-)
