Lunar Eclipse - August 28, 2007

5:22 AM 5:38 AM 5:50 AM 5:59 AM

The above sequence shows the march of the earth's shadow over the moon.  I was not able to capture the very beginning of the eclipse due to rain showers.  The end of the eclipse was cut short by a building cloud layer near the horizon as evidenced by the last image in the sequence.

Additional eclipse images can be seen at the SpaceWeather Eclipse Photo Gallery at SpaceWeather.com.
