Photos: Lunar eclipse thrills stargazers in America

The total lunar eclipse provided a spectacular astronomical show as it unfolded early Monday in the US on Sunday night.

The eastern part of North America and all of Central and South America were prime locations for eclipse viewing, while partial phases were visible across Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

Among those watching the eclipse, where the skies were clear, were residents of Buenos Aires, Argentina, tied up on a chilly night and resting on blankets in a park to watch the event. In Caracas, Venezuela, some people brought laser pointers, which were crowded to see.

The Moon was bathed in the reflected red and orange hues of Earth’s sunset and sunrise for about 1 1/2 hours, one of the longest totalities of the decade. It was the first so-called “blood moon” in over a year.

A total eclipse occurs when the Earth passes directly between the Moon and the Sun, and casts a shadow on the lunar surface. The Moon was 225,000 miles (362,000 kilometers) away at the peak of the eclipse – around midnight on the US East Coast.

There will be another long total lunar eclipse in November, with Africa and Europe being the best places to see it, but not the Americas. Then the next one is not until 2025.
