Slide 1: Rare Lunar Eclipse: In this 30 second timed exposure, astronomers and spectators use telescopes, binoculars, and their naked eyes to watch from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Jones Observatory in Chattanooga, as the moon begins its path through Earth's shadow during the total lunar eclipse. AP Slide 2: The moon takes a reddish tinge due to total lunar eclipse. Stronger atmospheric scattering of blue light means that the light that reaches the lunar surface is predominantly red in color during an eclipse so observers on Earth see a moon that may be brick-colored, rusty, blood-red or sometimes just dark grey, depending on terrestrial conditions in the night. AP Slide 3: A girl watches a lunar eclipse through a telescope in Mexico City. The last total lunar eclipse until 2010 occurred on Wednesday night, with cameo appearances by Saturn and the bright star Regulus on either side of the veiled full moon. AP Slide 4: The moon is seen partially covered during a lunar eclipse from Mexico City. This is the last total lunar eclipse until 2010. AP Slide 5: An amateur astronomer from Los Angeles readies his telescope in preparation to watch a total eclipse of the moon at the Griffith Park Observatory. AP Slide 6: A sequence of images taken approximately every twenty minutes show the moon passing through the shadow of the earth as photographed in Toronto. A total lunar eclipse, can only occur on a full moon, when the moon passes through the shadow of the earth. AP Slide 7: Amateur astronomers observe the eclipse of the moon from Vodno mountain, south of Macedonia's capital Skopje. AP Slide 8: People line-up to watch a lunar eclipse through a telescope in Buenos Aires. AP Slide 9: A partially eclipsed moon is seen near a golden domed cathedral in the town of Varna, east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia. AP Slide 10: Amateur astronomers look at a partially eclipsed moon in the town of Varna, in Bulgarian capital Sofia. AP Slide 11: The moon glows orange as it is seen above the Dome of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem's Old City, during a total eclipse. AP Slide 12: The moon is seen during a total eclipse above a statue of the Virgin Mary holding Jesus at Notre Dame Cathedral outside Jerusalem's Old City.
