Alright, I admit it. I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed in the middle of the night to watch the lunar eclipse live last night. Thankfully I can still catch the event via the lunar eclipse live camera [CNN] and you can too!
Watch the lunar eclipse live camera below:
Last night’s total lunar eclipse marks the first time a lunar eclipse has coincided with the winter solstice since 1638 [via KidGlue].
Not only that, a total eclipse of the moon is visible from all places within the hemisphere where the moon is above the horizon. Meaning that last night’s lunar eclipse was visible across North and South America, northern and western Europe, and a small part of northeast Asia, including Korea and most of Japan. That’s a potential viewing audience of about 1.5 billion people!
Did you catch the total lunar eclipse December 20, 2010? Or were you too snuggled up in bed like me to enjoy the live views of the moon? Tell us in the comments!
