While it happens quite often, a total lunar eclipse is still something special.

There will be a total lunar eclipse on December 10 starting about midnight.

There is a good article about it at the IceInSpace website which also has a guide as to where and when it will be visible.

Australia is well placed for the eclipse so, get outside of the 10th of December and have a look.

NASA also has a good site about all eclipses.

news@csiro is heading to Lake Mungo near Mildura for a few days to see where Mungo Man and Mungo Lady were discovered and to see the eclipse. Will keep you posted.
