Photo of the Day: Total Lunar Eclipse

The Washington Monument is seen as the full moon is shadowed by the Earth during a total lunar eclipse on the arrival of the winter solstice, Tuesday, December 21, 2010 in Washington. From beginning to end, the eclipse lasted about three hours and twenty-eight minutes.

    I agree it is basic. but you know what? i grew tired of lunar photos that show you different moon phases and nothing more. and actually this photo reminds me of the princess' tower in some fairy-tale. maybe that's why i like it... :-)
