Partial lunar eclipse timed for movie release

June 26, 2010 - SPACE

The partial eclipse, during which the Moon will take on a reddish glow, will be visible from much of the Americas, the Pacific and eastern Asia. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third movie in the Twilight vampire series, will be released four days later. The almost-matching dates suggests the promoters know all about the partial eclipse and plan to use its eeriness to boost the movie.

'Eclipse' finds the film's protagonist Bella, forced to choose between her passionate love for vampire Edward, and her deep friendship with werewolf Jacob Black.
