Here are some pictures i took of the Lunar Eclipse that occurred on August 28 2007. The west coast of US was the best spot for viewing the total transition as the eclipse started at 2:52 AM and lasted for approx 2 hours.

I was up the whole night to watch the moon enter totality, turn bright red and then emerge out of totality after 90 minutes. For those of you who missed it, the next lunar eclipse is on Feb 21, 2008. More details here….

What makes the next lunar eclipse exciting is that it is accompanied by a Solar Eclipse on Feb 07, 2008. Double treat for y’all ! If you aren’t already excited, then hear this. Year 2008 will have two solar and two lunar eclipses in Feb and Aug!. Check this link out…

    Stunning work Ari, especially the first one.

    I posted photos of the lunar eclipse on my blog, from the southern hemisphere it looked so different of course. I tell you I watched in awe with a glass of red wine in hand!
