Skywatchers thrilled by lunar eclipse
SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Residents of the Inland Empire got a front row seat for Sunday night's total eclipse of the Moon.
The eclipse began shortly after moonrise at 7:41pm and ended at 11:50pm.
The eclipse was visible throughout Southern California but was clearest away from the coast and across inland areas where skies cleared in time for the heavenly spectacle.
Astronomers say the appearance of the Moon changed dramatically during the course of the eclipse, and was worth viewing on multiple occasions during the evening.
Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles hosted an online broadcast of the total lunar eclipse. If you missed it, a time-lapse version feed will be available later on Griffith Observatory's YouTube Channel.
