      This photo is of a lunar eclipse over an Indian peace pagoda.  This photo captured the moon several times during the eclipse on December 10th.  The photo sequence was captured in New Delhi, India and the red tint of the moon is due to sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere.  The occurrence of a total lunar eclipse is extremely rare and the next occurs in 2014.
