Free Live Lunar Eclipse Webcast from Bareket Observatory

A free, live webcast from Bareket Observatory in Israel will feature the total lunar eclipse on June 15, 2011.

This relatively rare central eclipse -- meaning the moon will pass near the center of Earth's shadow -- promises to be longer and darker than usual. A similar eclipse will not occur until 2018.

This should be one of the most spectacular lunar eclipses in the last years!
