The totally eclipsed moon glows orange-red because of sunlight filtering through Earth’s atmosphere and onto the moon. These three images of the total lunar eclipse Dec. 21, 2010, show the moon minutes before totality (right), during totality (center) and minutes after totality (left). Two total eclipses of the moon will be visible across much of North America in 2014. Jimmy Westlake/courtesy

The surprise celestial event of 2014 might be a strong shower of meteors on May 24 caused by bits of dust from Comet 209P/LINEAR. Earth encountered a similar dust swarm from Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle in 2001 and experienced a meteor storm of more than 1,000 meteors per hour, seen here in an image taken from Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.
