June 26, 2010: Lunar eclipse


The partial lunar eclipse on June 26, 2010 was the first lunar eclipse of the year. There will only be two this year; the next eclipse will be a total eclipse on December 21, 2010. This eclipse was viewed best from the West Coast, so we didn't have the best view in Kansas, but we were still able to catch the beginning. Here are a few photographs I took of the eclipse, along with a few viewer submitted photographs if you missed it!

The following photographs were taken by Karen Zargan Kryschtal in Manhattan, Kansas. The first photograph was taken between 5:20 and 5:25 a.m., the following were taken at 5:40 a.m., 5:50 a.m. and 5:55 a.m. respectively.

The next two photographs were taken by Brenda Culbertson in Jackson County. The first picture is from the beginning of of the eclipse, the second picture is from the middle.

Mark Chan shared a great timelapse of the eclipse. You can view that video here.

Missed it completely as well. Been out of the loop as the old 'puter died in its sleep last week and just now got this new one out of the box and fired up.
