Lunar Eclipse Visits Durango

Lunar Eclipse Durango - Alex Pullen (1 of 1)A gathering of astronomic proportions took place this last Sunday throughout Colorado. Starting at about 8 pm a lunar eclipse was visible in the early evening sky. Folk of all kinds gathered to witness the stellar event from backyards, porches and trail-heads. In Durango, The Lion’s Den picnic shelter near Fort Lewis College, was a favored viewing location and parking in the area was scarce. Viewers excitedly talked as the rising super-moon was turned a bloody orange/red by the earth’s shadow. When the shadow finally passed across the face of the moon, it was reported that there was a round of applause and whooping/hollering noises could be heard throughout the Animas River Valley on into the evening.
