While we basked in the warm afternoon sun, much of the rest of the world witnessed the first total lunar eclipse in nearly three years. Luckily, many photos were taken. Good lookin' out, rest of the world!

We won't have to wait long to get ours -- the total lunar eclipse on August 27/28 will be fully visible from LA, assuming skies are clear.
