Sky gazers all over the world witnessed the lunar eclipse that occurred on Wednesday evening. The total lunar eclipse was the first of two such eclipses in 2011. The second will occur on 10 December.

This was a relatively rare central lunar eclipse, in which the center point of Earth’s shadow passes across the Moon. While Jeffreys Bay experienced some cloud cover, residents in St Francis Bay had great viewing conditions.
