Lunar Eclipse

We watched the lunar eclipse from our deck tonight. The sky was clear except for a small band of clouds hanging over the mountains, so we had a great view with eye and telescope. And of course, I had to try taking pictures of the eclipse. I'm not sure why some of the shadows are red and some are black; I would guess it has to do with whether the eclipse is total or partial, and therefore how much contrast there is between the shadow and the rest of the moon.
