Photo Of The Day – Coming Out Of The Eclipse

Title: Coming Out Of The Eclipse

Location: Los Angeles, California, USA, North America

Description: Lunar eclipses are always a treat, even if you have to get up at 5:15am to see them. Take a look at the close up in the photo below; it’s that moment when the moon just begins to take the fully lit rays of the sun again, while its other half is still bathed in our shadow. It’s a full range from brilliant white to deep reds and I think it’s fairly awesome.

Mark your calendars! The next full lunar eclipses will be:

  • July 27/28, 2018 for most of the planet except North America (even Antarctica!)
  • Jan 20/21, 2019 Back to North America and other places.
  • Rather than me keeping a list of them, check out Date & Time’s awesome site, with cool diagrams! It includes solar and lunar, full, partial, annular, etc…
