Today's Google Doodle is one of the first that showed up worldwide at the same time, not really date specific. Google Doodled the world's longest lunar eclipse in 11 years. The doodle consists of a video timeline with the moon starting out as full, then a shadow going over the moon (indicating the beginning of the eclipse), then the moon turning red, then the shadow leaving the moon and back to a full moon.
