28 August 2007 lunar eclipse

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: 28 August 2007 lunar eclipse

A total lunar eclipse will take place on August 28, 2007, the second of two lunar eclipses to occur in 2007. The Moon is expected to enter the Earth's penumbra at 07:53:39 UTC. The first partial phase will begin in earnest at 08:51:16 UTC when the Moon enters the Earth's umbra.
The total phase is expected to begin at 09:52:22 UTC and end at 11:22:24 UTC-- a length of 1 hour, 30 minutes, and 2 seconds. This is a typical duration for such an event.
Oklahoma is UTC-7 time zone (so the eclipse should begin at 2:52 am - that is if I am understanding the UTC times conversion)
Here is a cool video clip from earlier this year:
