Lunar Eclipse

There was a partial lunar eclipse last night. I marvel at the fact that almost nobody seemed to notice it or care too much one way or the other. In the past people got rather upset about this kind of astronomical event, ran around in a panic, foresaw the end of the world, made sacrifices, etc. We're so blasé nowadays...where's the magic?

Beautiful photo. I looked for the eclipse but we had a light cloud cover, boo. I was surprised not to read more about it on the news, etc... Thanks for showing us what I, anyway, couldn't see myself!

This was actually just the beginning of the eclipse. It ended up covering the moon almost completely, but this was the best photo I got.
