Pictures show partial lunar eclipse over Colorado

DENVER (KDVR) – A partial lunar eclipse was visible in parts of Colorado on Friday morning.

A lunar eclipse is when the Earth moves between the sun and a full moon. For that to happen, all three must fall completely in line with each other. In a partial eclipse, the three are not perfectly aligned, but they are close to it, meaning that only part of the moon will be in the shadow.

Because the Earth is between the sun and the moon in a lunar eclipse, the moon appears as a deep red color because the Earth casts a shadow on it. Friday’s partial lunar eclipse will have a small tab of the moon that is not in full shadow.

Here are some of the photos taken in Colorado this Friday of the partial lunar eclipse:
