  Summary: Now we know what it took to end the Curse of the Bambino--a lunar eclipse. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series on Wednesday night, Oct. 27, 2004, when the Moon glided through Earth's shadow and turned a vivid shade of red. [full story]

Clouds and haze threatened to spoil the event this morning (local time), but moments before the total eclipse the sky cleared! Beautiful moon, but darker than the last few eclipses I've seen.

A full copper moon creates an eerie post-Halloween feel for Wichita Falls Texas. I was surprised at how many stars I could see during totality (which is still going on as I write this) that I couldn't see before totality.

I was sleeping when my mother came and told me that in sky you can see lunar eclipse. I knew that I was little late but nevertheless I went outside with my camera.
