Last Eclipse of 2011

We’re all set to observe the last lunar eclipse as it happens beginning at 6:33 a.m. EST tomorrow and lasts until 12:30 p.m. EST.  According to news reports, totality will last a whole 51 minutes of time.  The best visibility will be on the West Coast.  East Coast residents only will get a short span of it before the light of the day becomes too bright to view the rest.

It is events just like this that encompass the spirit of The Wonders Expedition™.

For it is events just like this that have been monitored throughout the world for thousands of years through the development of megalithic circles and stone placements, the orientations of entrances to dolmens and the layouts of pyramids and henges.

If you have the chance to observe the last eclipse of 2011, we encourage you to do so.   You’ll be taking part in one of the oldest forms of human activity and in as much wonder about it as a man, woman or child who observed it as much as 5,500 years ago as the moon’s position rotated through a circle of stones and rocks weighing thousands of pounds.
