Last lunar eclipse until 2014

Yesterday morning marked the last lunar eclipse until 2014. It could be seen throughout western Canada and the United States along with those in Alaska, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, and central and eastern Asia. This eclipse was "low-hanging" in the sky, so those who got to witness it saw a large inflated, reddened moon! Canada and the United States got the best seats in the house for this event, but for most of us who missed it, here is a link to the pictures which are beyond beautiful : http://www.space.com/13894-photos-total-lunar-eclipse-december-2011.html.

So definitely check them out as well as the original article: http://news.yahoo.com/lunar-eclipse-stuns-skywatchers-bright-red-moon-175401975.html
