Lunar eclipse: The moon is shrouded in the early morning fog above Hauser Lake 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). The moon’s visible surface still receives some direct sunlight, but the Earth obscures parts of the sun, as seen from the moon.
