Director Dr. Ed Krupp talks to the hundreds of people who came to the Griffith Observatory Griffith Observatory as a unique total lunar eclipse was to transform the Moon pink, coppery or even a blood red.
Coinciding for the first time in almost four centuries the eclipse showed the Sun, the Earth and its satellite as they directly aligned, with the Moon swinging into the cone of shadow cast by its mother planet. The next lunar eclipse like this one wont be seen for another one thousand years. Los Angeles. CA. Dec 21,2010.
