Moon Eclipse 2011 Pictures?
The longest moon eclipse for a decade took place today, June 15, 2011.
I'm looking for pictures of the 2011 moon eclipse, does anyone know where can I find good ones?

Google was live streaming the whole moon eclipse over YouTube, unfortunately I missed it.

The lunar eclipse has been seen in many parts of the world including Europe, Africa, Russia and Australia, not sure if the US too though.
Please let me know where can I see quality pictures of the moon eclipse. Does anyone know why was the moon red?

The red hue of the moon during the eclipse is a reminder of the pollution especially in urban areas.
Last week's volcanic eruption in Chile was thought to have put enough sulfur in the air to lend a dusky, coppery color to the moon during totality.
The intensity of the color also depends on the amount of ash and dust in the atmosphere.
This moon eclipse was special, anything similar won’t be around again till at least 2018.

Here are some pictures of the 2011 moon eclipse.
