Eclipse visible in Chengdu – Aug 28, 2007 Total Lunar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like from the night side of earth.

This is an approximate representation. The eclipse and moon will look slightly different in real life.

The total phase of this lunar eclipse is not visible in Chengdu, but it can be observed there as a partial lunar eclipse.

The Earth's shadow covers a large portion of the Moon, so this is still a nice sight.
