Tonight, New Year`s Eve 2010, there is a partial eclipse of a full moon ( a "Blue Moon" too, two full moons within a calendar month).
An eclipse of a full Blue moon on New Year`s Eve occurs once every ninety one years
This photo was taken at 7.30pm this evening. Half an hour ago. There is earth shadow falling upon the bottom right corner of the moon. A truly amazing sight. Thanks to my OH for going out in the cold with his camera and long lens!
Wishing all of you a happy New Year`s Eve and a healthy, peaceful year in 2010. May we all try to tread more lightly on our own beautiful planet in 2010 and in the years to come.
