Billions of people all over the world were anxiously awaiting the 2010 total lunar eclipse and the show proved to be just as exciting as anticipated. Those of you who love astrology are going to love the video below which shows the entire lunar eclipse on live camera in less than a minute!
Today, many people (myself included) were asking themselves how often does a lunar eclipse occur and the answers vary according to sources because there are so many variations and types of lunar eclipses. What I can tell you is the last time the lunar eclipse fell on the same day as the winter solstice (which it did this year) was back in 1638 – amazing!
Those of you dedicated enough to get out of bed in the wee hours of the morning would have had the best chance to view the total eclipse. The event lasted about three and half hours in total, beginning at approximately 1:33am (as predicted) and ending at about 5:01am, according to NASA.
For those of you (or should I say us) who couldn’t drag ourselves out of bed in the middle of the night to view the amazing event, you can check it out in the video below.
Personally, I don’t think it’s as exciting to watch as a meteor shower, but definitely still cool.
