Total Lunar Eclipse

This is the total phase of lunar eclipse. Again, the clouds interfered, but when a hole passed in front of the moon it was very beautiful. Most of the moon was dark red in color, with the right side staying white, since the moon was passing through the edge of the Earth's shadow. Some have said that the moon reminded them of how Mars might look to an apporaching astronaut- red in color with a bright white polar cap. In this case the white is just light, there is nothing icy or polar about it.
