I felt some inspiration coming on due to the full moon and the looming lunar eclipse on April 25, 2013 and decided to throw together a quick seared tuna. In less than 10 minutes, I was on my way to a sweet and savory seared tuna dish.

For those science geeks out there, there will be a lunar eclipse on Thursday April 25, 2013. It is the  the first of the year, will be highly visible to observers in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia. The eclipse will not be visible from North America at all.

When it’s said that the eclipse is a partial one what that means is that at maximum eclipse only a portion of the Moon will be obscured by the Earth’s umbral shadow, roughly half of the Moon will be darkened from the penumbral shadow though.

The exact times follow: the penumbral eclipse begins at 18:03:38 UTC, the partial eclipse begins at 19:54:08 UTC, followed by the maximum eclipse at 20:07:30 UTC. The partial eclipse then ends at 20:21:02 UTC, and the penumbral eclipse ends at 22:11:26 UTC.

The eclipse made me grab my camera to get a shot of last night’s beautiful full moon using my 100-400mm Canon lens.
