Lunar Eclipse Over London
March 12, 2007
The beautiful photo above shows a view of the March 3 total lunar eclipse as observed from Albert Hall in London, England. This was the first such eclipse since 2004. The cherry colored Moon, which appears to be reclining on the roof of Albert Hall, was just emerging from the deepest portion of the Earth's shadow (umbra) when this picture was snapped. If you missed this eclipse due to poor weather or a less than stellar memory, another total lunar eclipse will be visible in late summer -- mark August 28 (2007) on your calendar.
