SEATTLE - A lunar eclipse - when the moon seems to have a “bite” taken out of it - is caused when the moon’s orbit takes the moon through the Earth’s shadow. If only part of the moon touches the shadow, we have a “partial” eclipse.

I took a few photos of the small but strong storm cell that toppled trees at Dash Point State Park. From our view we could see the cell rotating over Sea-Tac Airport. The colors were amazing, the cloud formations were beautiful.
