Behold the Moon
A clear, beautiful and blistery cold night made for perfect viewing of February's lunar eclipse. This image was taken at 9:36 p.m. EST on Feb. 20 from Buffalo, N.Y., by an amateur photographer and astronomer, who "took the picture by balancing the lens of the camera on the lens of the telescope." While not the most high-tech means of photographing such phenomenon, the picture still shows the beauty and wonder of our solar system.
