When the Earth Swings Between the Sun and the Moon

Simply beautiful photos of the Lunar Eclipse of December 10, 2011. It was the longest lunar eclipse in over 10 years. With the Earth swinging between the Sun and the Moon, Earth’s shadow was cast onto the Moon, with the red hue of the Moon resulting from the sun’s light passing through the earth’s atmosphere. If you missed it, the next total eclipse will occur in 2014.
