A Partial Eclipse Step By Step

On April 25, photographer Tamas Ladanyi took consecutive exposures of the first partial lunar eclipse of the year. Shooting from Tihany, Hungary near Lake Balaton, Ladanyi captured the 27-minute solar event, and it's beautiful

It looks like a giant Lunar-sized game of Angry Birds or a planet-shaped 'cut-here' indicator. Either way, it's gorgeous and I want to see it for myself.

The next partial lunar eclipse will take place from May 9 to 10 and will be visible from Northern Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific. [Tamas Ladanyi via NASA]
