Singapore experiences its last lunar eclipse for a while (via ST iPhone App)

9.00PM -- ST PHOTOS: DESMOND FOO Singaporeans received a celestial treat last night when the second total lunar eclipse of the year - and the final one till April 2014 - took place. The first total eclipse of the moon this year, on June 15, was the longest and darkest eclipse of the century, lasting an hour and 40 minutes. By comparison, the total phase of yesterday's event lasted 51 minutes. But its importance lies in the fact that there will be no total eclipse for the next 2 1/2 years. A total lunar eclipse occurs only during a full moon, when the Earth's satellite slips into our planet's shadow. It does not turn totally dark, thanks to indirect sunlight which gives it a dramatic reddish hue.
