Hauser Lake Moon

The moon is shrouded in the early morning fog above Hauser Lake, Idaho on Wednesday, during a penumbral lunar eclipse. This occurs when the Earth moves between the sun and moon but the three celestial bodies do not form a perfectly straight line. The moon then travels through the outer part of the Earth's shadow (penumbra). This means that all of the moon's visible surface still receives some direct sunlight - but the Earth obscures parts of the Sun, as seen from the  moon.
