Eclipsing Moon

A total eclipse of the moon occurs when the Earth's shadow falls across the Moon
Eclipses occur only at full moon, (but not every full moon) when the sun, Earth and moon are in a perfect line.
Next Total Lunar Eclipse Dec 21st 2010

We in Trinidad and Tobago were able to view the Total Lunar eclipse february 20th
from about 9:40PM until about midnight ; with Saturn also visible .
By 11.51 the moon was completely covered a reddish colour.

eclipsing moon--
in the stillness of tonight
as we watch
