There was a total lunar eclipse last night. Of course, I didn't find out about it until I was at work, sans camera, and still trying to finish up my paper.
I suppose if I had been home, I still would have been frustrated by the constant light cloud cover. My wife got some shots though, and some of them look pretty good.
As a substitute, I whipped up the image above. After all, a lunar eclipse just looks like the moon with a bite out of it, right?
Update: Here's a great lunar eclipse shot on Flickr. Of course, they used a telescope. Cheaters!
Update #2: Here's one of my wife's shots. The wiggly line going across the eclipse is a plane! The fact the track is wiggly leaves me to believe that my tripod is pretty crappy!
