Lunar eclipse. Moon rising over the horizon at the start of a lunar eclipse. The shadow of the Earth, the dark band seen above the horizon at sunset, is just beginning to pass over the lower left edge of the Moon. Lunar eclipses occur only at Full Moon, and only when the Earth and Moon are correctly aligned (about 2-3 times a year). Photographed in the desert near Ajo, Arizona, USA, in September 1996.
