Inside the Shadow of Mauna Kea

From the photographer: Richard Wainscoat

Editor's note: Technically speaking, this superb image from Richard Wainscoat was not taken at night. Clearly, the Sun was above the local horizon at the time of the photo. However, it is a remarkable scene that captures a particular celestial geometry, visually demonstrating the linear aspect of the Sun-Earth-Moon alignment during a penumbral lunar eclipse event.">
