Lunar Eclipse over Wyoming

Monday morning just before a fully lit Strawberry Moon dropped behind the Absaroka Mountain Range near Cody, Wyoming, USA, the shadow of the Earth got in the way.  Image credit: Mack H. Frost

A similarly setting partial lunar eclipse was visible throughout most of North and South America, while simultaneously the same partially darkened moon was visible throughout eastern Asia.



Pictured in the foreground is a snowbank formation known as the Horse’s Head off a tributary of the Shoshone River. Lunar eclipses occur about twice a year, and the next one — a penumbral eclipse — will occur in late November.
