Moon watchers from across the world were treated Saturday to a rare celestial phenomenon -- a total lunar eclipse that will be the last one until 2014.

The eclipse lasted for 51 minutes and eight seconds starting at 6:06 a.m. PST.

Since the eclipse was mostly visible in the Southern Hemisphere, sky-watching photographers took advantage of the opportunity to click pictures of the transitory event beside famous landmarks, including the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, the Tower of David in Jerusalem's Old City, and the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong.
