Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 4:45 am PST, the last lunar eclipse until 2014 will occur. The eclipse will render the moon a beautiful shade of red for about an hour and half. The reason why the moon doesn’t turn black is because there is a layer of dusty air covering the service of earth, which reflects the light from the sun. In essence it will be like a sunset over the surface of the moon.
Being that the eclipse will only be visible to certain parts of the world, the website Slooh will have a live feed from their space camera, allowing everyone in the world to witness this rare and beautiful occurrence.
