    Total Lunar Eclipse on December 21, 2010.
    The 3 1/2 hour celestial spectacle was visible from North and Central America where skies were clear. Portions of Europe and Asia only caught part of the show.

    The totality phase - when the moon was completely immersed in Earth's shadow - lasted 72 minutes.

    Since the year's only total lunar eclipse coincided with winter solstice, the moon glowed high in the sky.
