What time will the lunar eclipse happen in New Mexico?
Lunar Eclipse December 21, 2010 at 1:33 am (New Mexico)
When you see a lunar eclipse, it's always at night on your part of the earth. -- A lunar eclipse can only occur at the exact time of the Full Moon. -- The Full Moon is visible only in the night sky. So obviously, if you are in a place where you can see the Full Moon, then you are in a place where you can see a lunar eclipse if one is in progress…
The next lunar eclipse is set to occur on November 28th, 2012. This is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. April 25th, 2013 is when the next one from 2012 will occur. This is a Partial Lunar Eclipse. Keep in mind that an eclipse isn't always visible from every point on Earth-- You have to be fortunate that the shadow falls upon your region at the right time of day!
Lunar eclipses can be observed only during the night and only when the moon is far from the sun. Solar eclipses can be observed only during the day and only when the moon is near the sun.

In a lunar eclipse, it's the moon that becomes dark. So anyone on the night side of the earth ... with the full moon in his sky ... can see it happen. That means every zone on earth where the time is anything between sunset and sunrise at the time of the eclipse ... nominally half of the earth's surface.
A lunar eclipse can usually only be seen at night. although on rare occasions you can see a lunar eclipse and the Sun in the sky at the same time. A selenelion or selenehelion (also called a horizontal eclipse) occurs when both the Sun and the eclipsed Moon can be observed at the same time. This can only happen just before sunset or just after sunrise, and both bodies will appear just above the horizon…
