Lunar Eclipse Photos: August 28, 2007

Here's your ancient Greek lesson for the day: the word eclipse comes from the preposition ek (out) + leipw (to leave). Leipw also finds itself in such words as lend/loan and relinquish.

Yesterday's lunar eclipse wasn't perfect (at least as viewed from the MidWest), but awesome enough. Here's a few photos and videos that captured the phenomenon. If these don't inspire you...you gots problems.
