Total Lunar Eclipse- Click on a Thumbnail or Caption for a Larger Photo12/21/2010
I photographed the total lunar eclipse from my front yard in Havre de Grace, MD. The event took place in the pre-dawn hours of December 21st. The partial phase started at 1:33 AM. Totality began at 2:42 AM and ended at 3:53 AM. The second partial phase ended at 5:01 AM. Visually, the moon became fairly dark during the total phase. It took on a brownish-orange color, with a brighter area along the top. It did not look as bright as it did in the photos taken during totality.
