Along the US west coast and in Asia after sunset, people were lucky to see the ‘strawberry full moon’ – the first partial lunar eclipse in over a year.
It has been less than a couple of weeks since the ring of fire solar eclipse which delighted people throughout the Americas and Asia, and already we’re having a lunar eclipse; this is no coincidence – solar eclipses are always accompanied by partial lunar eclipses, less than two weeks before or after the phenomena.
As you can see, the Earth got in the way between the Sun and the Moon, casting a clear shadow over the lower part of the satellite. In solar eclipses, it’s the moon that gets between the Sun and the Earth.
Andrei's background is in geophysics, and he's been fascinated by it ever since he was a child. Feeling that there is a gap between scientists and the general audience, he started ZME Science -- and the results are what you see today.
