By on December 11th, 2011

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.

Show Starter!

Here is one of the earliest photos, circulated by Reuters, which shows the earliest phases of the eclipse.
