A Picture for Sunday - Partial Eclipse of the Moon

Until very recently I hadn't really appreciated how clearly visible the moon's surface is from earth.  I enjoyed staying up late last Tuesday and photographing the eclipse from our attic window.  It doesn't look much like cheese to me.  More like a giant gooseberry.

Interesting that the eclipse was on the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11.  No sign of the flag on my pictures, though.
