I’ve seen many images of solar eclipse. But I think this one is special. Very very beautiful work by Matt D Marshall.
Discovered via Flickr blog post.
The lunar eclipse last night made plenty of noise online and in the mass media. Let’s see how many of you watched it.
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.
Apparently, it was a partial solar eclipse yesterday that got me wondering why it is so dark. I thought it was just due to the rainy weather. I’m glad Big Picture has it covered. Awesome photographs, as always.
