Welcome to the July 2000

On the evening of Sunday 16th July there was a Total Lunar Eclipse. This eclipse was particularly long, in fact totality lasted for 1 hour 47 minutes, because the Moon passed almost exactly through the centre of the Earth's shadow.

This site broadcast the lunar eclipse live on the web. Between 7pm and 12am (July 16th) this site had 40,484 hits. The most hits happened between 9pm and 10pm (17,524). To see the Live Broadcast page as it was at 12:45am July 17th 2000, click here:
