Total lunar eclipse, partial phase Featured 11 Oct 1999 Image

Total lunar eclipse, partial phase

Lunar eclipse. Moon during the partially-eclipsed phase of a total eclipse, just a few minutes before all of its surface becomes darkened. Lunar eclipses are caused when the Moon enters the shadow cast by the Earth. Even during a total lunar eclipse the Moon does not generally disappear. It is still visible due to the sunlight refracted onto its surface by the Earth's atmosphere. The Moon appears red/brown because the blue light components of sunlight are scattered by dust particles in the atmosphere. Photographed on the night of 3-4 April 1996
