Lunar Eclipse June 26, 2010

In a little more than a month, the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn will occur. The partial eclipse will probably not be all that noticable unless the transit is watched closely. The Lunar Eclipse will be viewable from most of the Americas, over the Pacific Ocean regions and into parts of Asia. The peak time of the Lunar Eclipse will be June 26, 2010 at 11:39 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time would be approximately 4:39 a.m. The overall event will last almost three hours, so "watching" time could easily start an hour earlier and last an hour past the "exact" point.

This partial lunar eclipse belongs to the Lunar Saros Series 120 that originated from the North Lunar Node in the 12th family on October 16, 1000. The zodiac sign will be Capricorn at 4-degrees, 46-minutes.
