Stargazers Enjoy Total Lunar Eclipse – Photos Attached

(Photos courtesy of Rodney Snead)

On Sunday night and into early Monday morning, May 15-16, stargazers in the area watched as the Moon entered into and passed through the Earth’s shadow.  

During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the umbra, the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow, which makes the Moon seem to disappear from the night sky.  

Some of us tried to take photos of the Lunar Eclipse with our cell phones with varying success.  Rodney Snead shared his series of photos of the eclipse for those who missed it or were unable to capture photos of it.

Thank you, Mr. Snead, for the photos!
