Photos of the lunar eclipse captured by photographers in Colorado

Captivating photos of the lunar eclipse this week by photographers from Colorado.  A lunar eclipse, also known as a blood moon, is when Earth's shadow blocks the sun's light, which otherwise reflects off the moon.

Solar Eclipse

Stunning photos of this morning's solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurred this morning, captured in the Faroe Islands, and Svalbard.  A partial eclipse was visible from Scotland to northern Africa.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun.  The moon obscures our parent start and becomes a dark silhouette edged with light.  Because the moon blocks the sun's rays, it casts a shadow of darkness over a small part of Earth beneath it.  Lunar eclipses are different in that Earth comes between the sun and the moon.

Minor Lunar Eclipse expected this Friday night

The moon will pass through Earth's faint outer shadow, known as the penumbra, this Friday evening, with the time of the deepest eclipse occurring at 7:50pm ET.  People in the Mountain and Pacific time zones may not see the eclipse since this will occur in the later afternoon hours before the moon rises.
