>Ecllipse are between tonight and tomorrow morning from 20-21 December, astronomers and the general public in the region of North and South for treatment: a total lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth lines up directly between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun’s rays and casts a shadow on the moon. As the moon moves into the Earth’s shadow, its color changes from gray to orange or red, because indirect sunlight passes through Earth’s atmosphere and still casts a glow of the moon. Space.com provides links to a lunar eclipse, which guides eclipse photos of a total lunar eclipse, an overview of the times of the different states in different time zones of the solar eclipse and a star map.
The Lunar Ecllipse eclipse is not visible to Sri Lanka, as in the course of the day, “said Colombo, a professor of Physics at the University, Dr. Chandana Jayaratne. Is expected to last about three hours and go through a series of colors spectacular.
While the alignment of a solar eclipse, the moon, earth and the sun so the sun’s rays of the moon is protected. On the morning of Tuesday, December 21 Lunar Ecllipse eclipse starts at 01.33 CET on the clock (Monday, December 20 clock 10:33 CET). At that time the Earth’s shadow appears as dark red bite on the edge of the moon. It takes about an hour for the “bite” to expand and swallow the entire moon. Entire clock starts at 02:41 EST (11:41 CET day) and lasts 72 minutes.
If you board to take a quick glance – which is December after all – choose this time: 03:17 CET clock (17 minutes after midnight PST). That’s when the moon is in the deepest shadows that show the most fantastic shades of copper. Lunar Eclipse has five levels, according to Sky & Telescope. The first phase, when the moon is a pale outer edge (penumbra) of the Earth’s shadow. This phase is not visible to the public. The second phase, when the moon is inside Earth’s shadow (shadow) is reached. This is released when the shadows in black and red start.
A total area of all places, North and South America, North America and Western Europe and some regions in Northeast Asia, including Korea and Japan. total lunar eclipse can also be in the North Island, New Zealand and Hawaii to see. Therefore, this event is an opportunity to be viewed more than 1.5 million people.

After the calculation of the U.S. space agency (NASA), Eclipse can take about 3 hours and 28 minutes, when the moon enters the shadow, the shadow of the base, which is in the midst of a very dark during a lunar eclipse.
