A fabulous lunar eclipse was visible from much of North and South America (and portions of Western Europe) this past Wednesday night/Thursday morning. I peeked out at it a few times, but hubby actually got out a scope and pointed it skyward in front of the camera lens. It was glorious, indeed.
For my dear New Zealand friends, who couldn’t see the goings-on, here’s a picture just for you:
Almost looks fake, doesn’t it? (Well, it’s not. Honest.)
The next total lunar eclipse will be December 21 in 2010. Mark your calendars… wouldn’t want to miss the next one, would you?
