"On June 4th, 2012, there's going to be a full Moon. According to Native American folklore it’s the Strawberry Moon, so-called because the short season for harvesting strawberries comes during the month of June.
This Strawberry’s going to have a bite taken out of it.
At 3:00 am Pacific Daylight Time, not long before sunrise on Monday, June 4th, the Moon passes directly behind our planet. A broad stretch of lunar terrain around the southern crater Tycho will fall under the shadow of Earth, producing the first lunar eclipse of 2012. At maximum eclipse, around 4:04 am PDT, 37% of the Moon's surface will be in the dark.
There are charts, diagrams at the link.
Don't know 'bout you, but a little less crazy in the news would be OK by me. Just the same, I am getting up early and waving my hands over my head as the sun comes up. Gonna tell my early rising neighbors that I am making shadow puppets on the moon. Sadly, someone is likely to believe that is possible."On June 4th, 2012, there's going to be a full Moon.

Break out the flashlights. When a full lunar eclipse takes place on the shortest day of the year, the planet may just get awfully dark. The upcoming Dec. 21 full moon -- besides distinguishing itself from the others in 2010 by undergoing a total eclipse -- will also take place on the same date as the solstice (the winter solstice if you live north of the equator, and the summer solstice if you live to the south).

A Lunar eclipse will happen this December 2010. The Lunar Eclipse December 2010 will be a full lunar eclipse and will occur in the early morning of December 21. A notable aspect concerning this eclipse is that it will occur during the winter solstice. This doesn’t happen too often, so if you have clear sky and can get out during the event, you will definitely want to enjoy the view of the lunar eclipse.

A total lunar eclipse will take place on December 20/21, 2010. It will be visible after midnight Eastern Standard Time on December 21 in North and South America. The beginning of the total eclipse will be visible from northern Europe just before sunrise. The end of the total eclipse will be visible rising at sunset for Japan and northeastern Asia, it also appears very visible to the Philippines just after sunset (as in Partial lunar eclipse). It will be the first total lunar eclipse in nearly 3 years, the last being on February 20, 2008.
It is the second of two lunar eclipses in 2010. The first was a partial lunar eclipse on June 26, 2010. It is also called the Christmas lunar eclipse. It will be the first total lunar eclipse to occur on the day of the Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere; Summer in the Southern) since 1638.
The previous total lunar eclipse occurred nearly three years earlier, on February 21, 2008.
Lunar saros cycle series 125, repeating every 18 years and 11 days, has 26 total lunar eclipses. The first was on June 17, 1704 and the last will be on March 19, 2155. The longest totality occurrence of this series (7th) was on August 22, 1812 when totality lasted one hour and 42 minutes.
This is the 18th of 26 total lunar eclipses in series 125. The previous occurrence was on December 9, 1992 and the next will occur on December 31, 2028.

Wake up, SkyWatchers! A partial lunar eclipse is coming your way on June 26, 2010. While the real visible action will be best in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, observers to the east will be able to catch the beginning of the lunar eclipse and observers to the west will catch the end of the eclipse.

A blue moon, with an eclipse, on New Years Eve. What are the odds?
Although there were 41 Blue Moons in the twentieth century, there was one of only four during an eclipse, and the only total eclipse of a Blue Moon in the twentieth century.
A Blue Moon happens every 2.7 years because of a disparity between our calendar and the lunar cycle. The lunar cycle is the time it takes for the Moon to revolve around Earth: 29 days, 12 hours, and 44 minutes.
So stay tuned. . . It’s about to happen again.
December’s Full Moon is traditionally known as the Old Moon, or the Moon after Yule. And on New Year's Eve we’re going to call it Blue. No matter what it is referred to, it is still a lovely sight to watch it rise in its grey-scale glory and glide across the luminous night sky. But for some lucky viewers in much of Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia the Old Blue Moon after Yule will also partially eclipse!
Only a very small portion of the Moon's southern limb will be in the Earth's umbral shadow, but there will be a noticeable darkening visible over the Moon's face at the point of greatest eclipse. Need more? Then know this eclipse is the one of four lunar eclipses in a short-lived series. The lunar year series repeats after 12 lunations or 354 days. Afterwards it will begin shifting back about 10 days in sequential years. Because of the date change, the Earth's shadow will be about 11 degrees west in sequential events.
For the eclipse, the duration of the partial phase will last within two seconds of a hour long, while the penumbral duration from beginning to end will run about four hours and eleven minutes. Penumbral contact will begin at 17:17:08 UT and umbral contact at 18:52:43 UT. The moment of greatest depth of shadow will occur at 19:22:39 UT, 31 December 2009. It will be visible from all of Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
What a wonderful way to end our year together. . .
A once in a new years eve, eclipsed, blue moon, experience. . . . .

A partial lunar eclipse will take place on August 16, 2008, the second of two lunar eclipses in 2008. Most of Eastern Europe and Africa, and a large portion of Western and Central Asia and India, will see the entire eclipse. South America, Eastern Asia and Australia will observe part of the event.
The partial eclipse is the second of the two lunar eclipses in 2008, with the first being a total eclipse on February 20, 2008. The next lunar eclipse will be a penumbral eclipse occurring on February 9, 2009, while the next total lunar eclipse will occur on December 21, 2010A partial lunar eclipse will take place on August 16, 2008, the second of two lunar... more
