The lunar eclipse on Saturday night was visible from Iceland. At first the moon hid behind clouds, but after awhile the clouds scattered and people could observe the moon as it disappeared into the shadow of the Earth.
According to Morgunbladid, lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the moon. It is not uncommon; usually there is a lunar eclipse every year.
The last lunar eclipse visible from Iceland was in late October 2004.
