Lunar Eclipse 15 June 2011

On Wednesday night, June 15th, there will be a total lunar eclipse visible from every continent except North America.

The Moon will spend 100 minutes fully engulfed in Earth’s shadow, making this the longest lunar eclipse in nearly 11 years.

The appearance of the eclipse might be affected by exhaust from Chile’s erupting Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcano, which is also causing spectacular sunsets around the southern hemisphere.
