The Entire Eclipse

Region: Europe

Country: Germany

Date: 2007 March 3

As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day the enitre phases of a lunar eclipse has captured here over Germany. No special filters - or even a telescope - are required to enjoy a leisurely lunar eclipse. In fact, watched from all over the night side of planet Earth, these regular celestial performances have entertained many casual skygazers. Still, this eye-catching picture of a lunar eclipse may look unfamiliar. To make it, the photographer set his camera on a tripod and locked the shutter open during the total lunar eclipse of March 3, 2007. The resulting image records the trail of the Moon (and narrower trails of stars) sliding through the night. Reddish hues common during the total phase of a lunar eclipse, are evident along the darker, slimmer portion of the Moon trail. Stefan Seip/Astromeeting.de.
