The moon was in total eclipse last Saturday over most of United States. During a total lunar eclipse, the moon isn't completely dark. Some sunlight, refracted by Earth’s atmosphere, continues to strike the moon’s surface, giving it a reddish glow. The next full lunar eclipse visible from the United States will occur on October 28th, 2004.
