At August 28 2007 the Sun, Earth and Moon lined up in a spectacular fashion to get one of more beautiful celestial events: a lunar eclipse. Below you will find a few photos that I took with my DSLR in the backyard of Brian Schmidt. If you have any questions and/or comments, just mail me at .

Details on the path of the Moon through the Earth's shadow can be found here. This figure has been taken from the website by Fred Espenak, an excellent resource for upcoming solar and lunar eclipses.
