Lunar Eclipse 2010: Twitter Users Upload Images

For those of you that missed the Lunar Eclipse, will be pleased to hear that images taken from Twitter users have been uploaded on the social networking site.

The Lunar Eclipse 2010 was the first in two years, and as Debbie here at OSM reported, it coincided with the winter solstice for the first time since 1638. The Earth’s shadow completely covered the moon for a breathtaking 72 minutes with what first seemed like a small darkening on the edge of the moon at approximately 1.30 am East Time, and as PCMag.com reported, at 2.30 am the moon had turned a complete reddish color.

During the event, the sun, Earth and moon fall into line only allowing the sun’s indirect light to filter through, leaving out the blue and white orb in the middle.

However, if you missed the wondrous occasion, and are overwhelmed by the huge range of pictures posted, Mashable have already carried out the work for you, by picking 5 of the best. To take a look, head over to the link directly above.
