Monday's lunar eclipse escapes cloud cover

 

Monday night was not only the longest night of the year but a night of beautiful celestial activity.

During the lunar eclipse, the earth's shadow covered the full moon, creating a red shadow that was visible by the naked eye. The eclipse lasted for about two hours.

According to NASA, there will be four partial eclipses in 2011, though they may be too far away to be visible.
