Talk about time travel!  Here’s a picture of the total lunar eclipse from February of 2008.  Not only did the light from the sun take over 8 minutes to get to the moon and then bounce off of it to the Time Machine’s camera, but the image itself has been languishing for almost 1200 days!

So here it is – a peek back more than three years in time of a total lunar eclipse in 2008.  This image has it all – the bright white of a full moon, the light gray of a penumbral shadow, the deep red of an umbral shadow, the darkness of a new moon and the blackness of space all ’round.
