Partial eclipse

Those who got up real early on Friday morning may have caught a glimpse of a rare celestial phenomenon, the longest partial eclipse to take place since 1440. The eclipse was visible from about 2 to about 5:30 a.m., peaking at about 4 a.m., when 95 percent of the moon was in part of the earth’s shadow, turning much of the moon into a deep red. This photo was captured at Machicomoco State Park.
