Western U.S. Sees Last Lunar Eclipse of 2011

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Those in the right place at the right time Saturday morning received a special viewing – the last lunar eclipse of 2011.

Around 6 a.m. pacific time, the moon was completely consumed by the earth's shadow.

Michael Eckert, a senior branch forecaster with the National Weather Service said states in the western and northcentral United States would have the best view of the moon as it turns a dark, rusty red.

Totality -- when the moon is completely consumed by Earth's shadow -- began at 6:06 a.m. Pacific time Saturday, and ended at 6:57 a.m.
