Lunar Eclipse 2011 North America
June 16, 2011 by staff
Lunar Eclipse 2011 North America, An unusually long lunar eclipse followed much of the world Tuesday night, yielding a blood red glow on the moon for over an hour and a half. But when the universe was the delivery of tickets for this match, North America was not invited. Indeed, it was the only continent on the planet not to get at least a partial view of the case, according to NASA.
The eclipse was notable for its length – the total eclipse lasted over 100 minutes in parts of Asia, Europe and Africa – which is the longest since 2000 and one of the longest on record, NASA records show.
“But, unfortunately for the Garden State, which ended shortly after 7 pm EST, about an hour and a half before sunset.
However, revelers could get a dose space, with a little help from Google’s technology and space photography website Slooh.com. The two teamed up to offer a live webcast of the event on Google’s YouTube channel.
A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth is placed directly between the Sun and the Moon. The moon often takes on an orange or reddish tone during an eclipse, because indirect sunlight is still able to cross the Earth’s atmosphere, which filters out blue light out, casting a glow on the moon.
The next total lunar eclipse visible in New Jersey is expected in September 2015 and will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
