Light House Eclipse

Total lunar eclipse of Oct. 27, 2004 above Ponce Inlet lighthouse in Florida, USA. As noted by the photographer "The spectacular eclipse took place on the night the Red Sox won the world series. The image was captured with a Nikon n8008 camera, one of the few SLRs that can take unlimited multiple exposures. The image was created by snapping about 37 exposures, every six minutes for the duration of the eclipse. The film was never advanced, so all 37 images were captured on the same film negative frame (the lighthouse was captured all 37 times as well; it is not a composite photo). The addition of 37 short exposures combined is the equivalent of a lengthy (about 40 seconds) nighttime exposure of the lighthouse." Ben Cooper
