Total lunar eclipse

If you are reading it minutes after I post, then don’t lose precious time – run outside and look at the Moon.  Today you have a rare opportunity to observe total lunar eclipse.  If you are, and you probably are, late, then consider the illustration below.  Since I don’t possess all the necessary skill and equipment to make a photograph, I turned to my mad drawing skills.

Feel free to reuse the image as you wish, and please ignore all the scientific inconsistencies – I am not much of an artist and I had limited time.  After all, space bodies involved in this phenomena are moving fast.

Interestingly, even Google search is tracking the movement of the shadow.
