North America saw a total eclipse of the Moon Sunday evening – putting on quite a pinkish show at either sides of the full eclipse as the Earth gets in the way of the suns rays hitting the surface the Moon – the Earth casting a shadow on ole Mr. Moonbeam.

An added bonus was the that Moon’s distance from the earth was at its least – just 226,000 miles, meaning its image is the biggest it’ll be all year. The farthest its orbit is 252,000 miles. It means the Moon this evening looked 14% bigger and 30% brighter, AFTER the eclipse, of course.

Partial Moon eclipses will be on January 31, 2018 and January 20, 2019. Then the Pacific Northwest will see another total Moon eclipse in 2033. A total eclipse of the sun will be visible here in Oregon on August 21, 2017 – also on October 14, 2023.
