Total Lunar Eclipse Over Europe

In the evening on March 3, 2007 Europeans will have the chance to see a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be the first in three years that will become total. The moon will enter Earth’s shadow at 21.30 GMT and will be completely entered at 22.44 GMT. The spectacle will last until 23.58 GMT. At least if you have the luck of a clear and cloudless sky.

A total lunar eclipse will occur, when the moon enters in Earth’s deepest shadow. Then the moon will not disappear as one may think, but instead due to the refraction in Earth’s atmosphere, it will become copper red.

If you miss this opportunity, you won’t have to wait that long next time as it was this time. The next visible total eclipse visible from Europe will be on February 21, 2008.
