Lunar eclipse

The full moon will plunge into shadow tonght, courtesy of a total lunar eclipse.  Just like any solid object, the Earth casts a shadow.  When the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow, a lunar eclips occurs.  It’s a good thing I did not sell my telescope yet – because I will try to stay up and get a photo.
