Hits: 78

The progression of the Earth’s shadow started to cross the moon at about 2:30 A.M. EST. At approximately 3:30 to 3:45 A.M., in White Plains NY USA, clouds mysteriously weaved past the speeding full moon, 240,000 miles from Earth. Clouds continued to thicken until overcast enshrouded the eclipse at its greatest extent (below) but the veils of the universe crossing the moonface created wonder in the night.
This morning’s Penumbral Partial Eclipse in White Plains at its apex at about 4:20 A.M. The celestial event was cloaked in clouds. The Earth’s shadow can be seen at the right side of the full moon. Clouds and gathering humid air obscured the crispness of the moon event.
