Every cosmic spectacle presents some stunning images and yesterday’s Lunar Eclipse was no different. Many people in the Indian sub-continent were left satisfied this time around, after the June eclipse (awesome pics here) was obscured by heavy cloud cover, leaving eclipse enthusiasts disheartened. We bring to you few photos from around the world.
Here is one of the earliest photos, circulated by Reuters, which shows the earliest phases of the eclipse.
Blood Red and Brilliant
Here’s a brilliant one taken by David Prosper. This is just one of the many he took from his backyard in Oakland, California.
Here’s a close-up of the moon, by now just an orange ghostly image. This one was taken by Charles R. Jones, who is a skywatcher. This is from Phoenix, Arizona.
This next one is an absolute beauty. It was taken at the Turret Arch at Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. The photo is taken from Hungeree, which has a few other gems in their kitty too.
The Final Goodbye and Hello Once again!
This one is by Kendra Lakkees, showing the end of the totality phase of the eclipse.
The last one is the end of the eclipse. Taken by yours truly, from Kolkata, India, this closes the article.
Hope you enjoyed. The next lunar eclipse is a long time away.
