This was the last Lunar Eclipse of 2011 at 6a.m. this morning. Fortunate that the sky was clear but the temp at the beach was 38 degrees and the wind made it feel even colder. I didn’t have gloves and my hands were so cold it was very difficult to operate the camera. The beach was completely packed with people watching the eclipse. I was lucky to find a parking space as cars were double parked and into the street. This lunar eclipse occurred when the Moon passed behind the Earth so that the Earth blocked the Sun’s rays from striking the Moon. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle.
