Partial Eclipse over Indian Ocean

By: John Goldsmith


Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Perth - Australia

Date: 2008 August 17

The partially eclipsed Moon sets in the Indian Ocean, photographed from the coast of Perth in Western Australia. As noted by the photographers "The Moon was still in eclipse when it set over the Indian Ocean through the pink glow and deep blue shadow of the Earth on the planet atmosphere. This is a truly magical moment to experience the alignment of the Sun, Earth and Moon at dawn, together with the powerful incoming swell of the Indian Ocean. It reminds me of the awesome power of nature". John Goldsmith.
