Lunar Eclipses

On the night of a total lunar eclipse, head outside and you'll see Earth's shadow slowly and inexorably engulf the Moon before bathing it in sunlight that's been filtered to a blood red. Browse the pictures below and you'll see every penumbral and umbral stage of a total or partial lunar eclipse captured in our reader's stunning photographs.
