Photo of the Week - Blood moon

Keven Jansen took this photo of the so-called “Blood Moon” at 2:50 a.m. on Tuesday from his front yard by East Lake Geneva. The Earth’s shadow put the moon in a total eclipse and refracted sunlight made the moon appear red. If you didn’t see it this time around, other opportunities await. Three more lunar eclipses will occur in six-month intervals until September 2015. If you have a submission for “Photo of the Week,” e-mail it to or drop it off at the newspaper office at 225 7th Avenue East, Alexandria. Remember to include where and when the photo was taken.
