It was the third-shortest partial lunar eclipse of this century, only 27 minutes long. And North America could not see any part of it. But today’s eclipse – April 25, 2013 – was visible in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. The photos are beginning to come in, and they are beautiful.
Bottom line: Photos from EarthSky friends around the world of the April 25-26 partial eclipse of the moon. Third-shortest eclipse of the 21st century? Meh. That didn’t stop us! Thanks to all who posted!
