Lunar eclipse

This is the photo I took on Saturday night, just before going to bed, of the beginning of a lunar eclipse. The sky was very clear so it was possible to see it clearly.

We could easily see the earth's shadow falling on the moon. These kind of things always amaze me very much.

Sorry to say we were too tired to watch it till the whole shadow of the earth would be over the moon and the moon would glow with a coppery-red hue. That would have been interesting to see.

Just now I looked it up in Wikipedia and there was a good picture of various stages of this eclipse.
