Lunar Eclipse 2010
The solar eclipse which took place at exactly 3:17 AM EST happened to coincide with the winter solstice of 2010, something that hasn’t happened in around 400 years so it is truly a historical event.
The NASA website offered live video of the lunar eclipse as the moon was completely blocked out in the sky. The last time that this happened was in 1638 and astronomers say that it is something that will not happen again until the year 2094.
For some the lunar eclipse was visible on December 20th late at night or December 21st in the early morning, but it varies depending on the location of whoever is watching the sky.
The eclipse started at 2:41 am EST and it reached its peak at around 3:17. There were a number of NASA experts and astronomers who were excited about the event considering it is a once in a lifetime experience. Some commented that 400 years ago it will have been something that people would have gladly given their lives for; today we go onto Twitter to talk about it.
There is no doubt that the lunar eclipse was a historical event that many people will not soon forget.*Sponsored Links*
