Lunar eclipse of April 2015. Totality was supposed to be very short, but observers report that it didn't even quite happen. There was still a sliver of sunlight on the Moon even at its darkest. (Image credit and copyright: Rolf Wahl Olsen)
Was This Past Weekend's Lunar Eclipse Really Total?
Risen moon, unshadowed from our view,/ Toward dawn, glides into darkness./ In uncertain times, a dread omen/ Of ending and descent to shadow.// But this day (for us) a full restoration,/ An amen, fears pacified, night ending./ As Luna’s emerging bright glow/ Is doubled in long & calm reflection.// (Poem & photograph of the Moon emerging from eclipse - Paul Morgan, Los Angeles, April 5, 2015)

Lunar eclipse in Colorado, 2015.04.04. A telescope shows up a blue band as the Moon emerged from totality. Light penetrating the ozone layer becomes bluer, because ozone absorbs red light. This can be seen as a turquoise-blue border around the red. (Image credit: Jimmy Westlake) Mona Evans, "Blood Moons and Lunar Tetrads" www.bellaonline.c...

Total lunar eclipse. The green light beam is a laser being used to measure the Earth-Moon distance. The laser's target is a retroreflector left on the Moon by Apollo 15 astronauts. Timing the return of the laser pulse allows a highly accurate determination of the distance traveled. Performance is improved during the eclipse because direct sunlight is blocked.

[ #astronomy ] This is not a scene from a sci-fi special effects movie. The green beam of light and red #lunar disk are real enough, captured in the early morning hours of April 15. The green beam of light really is a laser, shot from the 3.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico, the beam’s path is revealed as Earth’s atmosphere scatters some of the intense laser light. The laser’s target is the Apollo 15 retroreflector, left on the #Moon by the #astronauts in 1971. ~Al. A.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the outer part of Earth's shadow, called the penumbra, and then into the dark umbra. When fully immersed in the umbra, the moon is in total eclipse or in totality. (Credit: Sagredo) Mona Evans, "Blood Moons and Lunar Tetrads" www.bellaonline.c...

Lunar eclipse - TheHomeschoolScientist.com. upcoming April 14-15, 2014 lunar eclipse is special because this will be the 1 in a 4-total eclipse cycle called a tetrad. The other eclipses in this cycle are approximately 6 months apart over the next 1.5yrs – October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, & September 28 2015. Along w/the total eclipse on April 14-15, look for red planet, Mars- will be brilliant & close to the moon throughout the eclipse. -will be the closest Mars will be to the earth all year.
Eclipse penumbral de Luna: El próximo 28 de noviembre de 2012, en la zona noroeste de España se podrá ver un eclipse penumbral de la Luna. Un eclipse Lunar sucede cuando la Tierra se interpone entre el Sol y la Luna, impidiendo que los rayos del Sol lleguen a nuestro satélite. Para que ocurra este evento astronómico los tres astros -Sol, Tierra y Luna

Thierry Legault Captures ISS Transit of the Sun -- During Eclipse!
A total eclipse of the sun coincides with the 2015 vernal equinox. "How rare is a total solar eclipse on the vernal equinox? Well, the last total solar eclipse on the March equinox occurred back in 1662 on March 20th. There was also a hybrid eclipse — an eclipse which was annular along a portion of the track, and total along another — on March 20th, 1681. But you won’t have to wait that long for the next, as another eclipse falls on the northward equinox on March 20th, 2034."
Path of the March 20, 2015 solar eclipse. It occurs on the day of the March equinox, which hasn't happened since the 17th century. The only land areas where the total eclipse may be visible are the Faroe Islands and the island of Svalbard. But Europe, North Africa, parts of the Middle East & north central Asia will have a partial eclipse. Mona Evans, “Solar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...

Solar Eclipse Analemma (Image & copyright: Cenk E. Tezel & Tunç Tezel (TWAN)) Take a picture that includes the Sun in the same place every day & over a year the Sun positions make a figure-8 called an analemma. At northern Winter Solstice the Sun is at the bottom of the analemma. This analemma, shot in Turkey, starting in 2015, includes a total solar eclipse. The base image was taken during totality on 2009-03-29. Mona Evans, “Winter Solstice” www.bellaonline.c...

fyeahuniverse: Solar Eclipse Analemma If you were to go outside and take a picture of the sun from the same spot and time of day for an entire year, you could track the movement of the sun in the sky, and that movement would look exactly like this: a figure eight. This is called an analemma, and the term for an analemma containing a solar eclipse is a tutulemma, a term based on the Turkish word for eclipse. (x)

Diamond and Rubies - Many features of the Sun only become apparent during a total eclipse. This is a photograph taken at the moment when a tiny part of the Sun’s disc shines out between the mountains on the edge of the Moon, creating an effect known as the ‘diamond ring’. We see the Sun’s corona as a diffuse white haze, and closer in, the Sun’s chromosphere appears in the red light of hydrogen. Photo by by Tunç Tezel, Turkey.
Diamond and Rubies by Tunç Tezel, Turkey. (Highly Commended) A lingering diamond ring before the beginning of totality on 3rd November 2013, as seen from Pajengo village near Pakwach, Uganda. There was also a thin layer of clouds, which diffused the lights of the diamond and red ring of chromosphere around the Moon.

Hybrid Solar Eclipse 2, by Eugen Kamenew, Germany. People & Space winner. The eclipse began as an annular eclipse at sunrise, but it became total as it crossed the Atlantic.

The sun and moon sink together behind a Kenyan savanna skyline, locked in an eclipse in which the moon is silhouetted against the sun’s bright disc. This rare example of a hybrid solar eclipse took place in November 2013

Eclipsed moon with turquoise fringe. 2014-04-15. (Image: Robert & Elisabeth Slobins) Prof Richard Keen says that "most of the light illuminating the Moon passes through the stratosphere, and is reddened by scattering. But light passing through the upper stratosphere penetrates the ozone layer, which absorbs red light & actually makes the passing light ray bluer!" ©Mona Evans, “Lunar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...
THE TURQUOISE FRINGE: Lunar eclipses are supposed to be red, yet when the Moon passed through Earth's amber shadow on April 15th, many observers witnessed a softly-glowing band of turquoise blue. Robert and Elisabeth Slobins send this picture of the phenomenon from Fort Myers, Florida.
Geometry of a solar eclipse. Since the Moon is small compared to Earth its shadow is narrow. Any place where the darker part of the shadow (the umbra) falls would have a total eclipse, but within the outer part of the shadow (the penumbra) the eclipse is only partial.
