Eclipsed Moon
The lunar eclipse of December 10, 2011 occurred with the moon just entering total eclipse as the Moon set over the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. This image was obtained 22 minutes before sunrise and 17 minutes before the beginning of totality. The cloud-capped mountain below center is 13,294 foot James Peak, and just off the left edge is Parry Peak.
