Me Seeing The Early Morning Partial Eclipse (6-4-12) Photo #1

Me looking and enjoying the nice, partial lunar eclipse. Burrr, it was cold though! This was just outside home in San Jose, CA. (Monday, June 4, 2012; 3:41 a.m.)


This partial lunar eclipse stands out this year because of its timing. The eclipse occurred just over two weeks after a dazzling "ring of fire" solar eclipse on May 20, 2012 and came just one day ahead of what would possibly the most anticipated skywatching event of the year: the historic transit of Venus across the sun on Tuesday, June 5, 2012!!
