Lunar eclipse set for Saturday, June 26, 2010.

By

On Saturday morning, June 26, 2010, a lunar eclipse will occur for people in the Americas. The 'Moon Illusion' lunar eclipse will occur as the Moon nears the horizon (Moonset). Elsewhere in Eastern Asia and Australia, the lunar eclipse will occur near Moonrise.


The eclipse in the Americas begins at about 4:50 a.m. Central Daylight Time (CDT) (950 GMT) while the Sun is beginning to rise on the opposite side of the sky.

People in the western and central parts of the United States and Canada will see the best views of the lunar eclipse.

The Moon will be setting in the western sky just as the eclipse reaches is maximum, and just before the Sun begins to rise in the eastern sky, for the dawning of a new day.

People in the eastern United States and northeastern Canada, generally, will not see the lunar eclipse (a few will see a quick glance) because the Moon will have already set below the horizon before the eclipse begins.

At around 6:38 CDT (1138 GMT), the largest portion of the Moon will be eclipsed'”just less than 54% of it'”as the Earth's shadow falls on about half of the Moon.

The lunar eclipse is expected to last for a total of nearly three hours.

During this time, much of the Moon will be darkened by the event, with a possibility of seeing color hues of orange and red coming off of the Moon'”of course, with weather permitting.

According to the NASA Science News article Big Lunar Eclipse, 'Although the eclipse is only partial, it will be magnified in size and charm by the "Moon Illusion"--a result of the eclipse occurring close to the horizon from viewing sites in the USA.'

People in Australia, India, Japan, and parts of Eastern Asia will experience the same phenomenon'”only they will see the eclipse on Saturday evening, June 26, 2010, as the Moon is rising over the horizon.

Please take a look at the NASA article, earlier mentioned, because it provides illustrations of where the lunar eclipse will be visible, and additional information on this interesting event.

The second (last) lunar eclipse of 2010 will be a total lunar eclipse on December 21, 2010. It will be visible from the Americas and western sections of Europe.

Additional information on the June 26 eclipse can be viewed on the June 18, 2010 Space.com article 'Partial Lunar Eclipse Coming On June 26.'
