All Eyes Set on the Philippines for the 2011 Lunar Eclipse

Okay, so all eyes are set once again to the Philippines for the June 16th Lunar Eclipse of 2011. It was anticipated by millions of people all over the world and a few hours ago, thousands of lunar eclipse images and searches flooded internet. Even Google particularly made a Lunar Eclipse image making one of their O’s represent the moon.

Around the world, millions of spectators have taken pictures of the 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse. It is said to be the longest Lunar Eclipse in 11 years! With an average of one and a half hour of the event, millions gathered to see this amazing view. Another total Lunar Eclipse is set for December 10th this year. I should stay up late for this one. I missed out on the June Lunar Eclipse excitement because I was too tired to stay up late. Anyway, I gathered images all over the web for your viewing pleasure. Also you can find more information about today’s Lunar Eclipse from Journey to the Stars blog.
