About the Partial Lunar Eclipse
A partial lunar eclipse took place on June 26, 2010, the first of two lunar eclipses in 2010. At maximum eclipse 53.7% of the moon was covered by the earth's shadow.
This eclipse preceeds by two weeks the total Solar eclipse of July 11, 2010 over the south pacific.
The next total lunar eclipse, visible over North and South America, will occur six months later, on December 21, 2010.
This eclipse is a part of Lunar Saros 120 series, repeating every 18 years and 10 days, last occuring on June 15, 1992, and will next repeat on July 6, 2028. This series is winding down: The final total eclipse of this series was on May 14, 1938 and the final partial lunar eclipse will be on July 28, 2064.
