Local amateur photographer Fred Schumacher caught stunning images of Saturday’s total lunar eclipse. Saturday’s event was the last total lunar eclipse until 2014.

The total phase lasted 51 minutes and was visible from the Pacific side of North America, across the entire Pacific Ocean to Asia and Eastern Europe.

Schumacher took his photos at around 5 a.m. Saturday from Merritt College in the Oakland Hills.
