Lunar Eclipse in the Clouds
Photographed by Fred Lusk on October 27, 2004
From California State University, Fresno
The umbral phase of this total lunar eclipse began just a few minutes after moon rise. Thin clouds were hanging around the eastern horizon, so our early views of the eclipse looked spooky like this. In this image, Earth's shadow has only taken a small bite out of the Moon (lower left).
