Pictures of the eclipse from Terrington
STARGAZERS were all of a flurry this morning (Tuesday) because of a special lunar eclipse.
Terrington St Clement Lynn News reader Fee Burrudge sent us these amazing pictures of the eclipse, taken from her garden between 7.20am and 8am.
“The eclipse was truly amazing - Mother Nature seems to be the only one on the planet to get things right!”.
Not only was it the first total lunar eclipse to occur in almost three years but it was the first time a total lunar eclipse had taken place on the day of the northern winter solstice since 1638.
The phenomenon was visible from 12.27am to 6.06am Eastern Standard Time in North and South America. The beginning of the total eclipse was visible from northern Europe just before sunrise.
It is the second of two lunar eclipses in 2010, the first, a partial lunar eclipse, took place on June 26.
