Lunar Eclipse above Alps

By: Bernd Proschold


Region: Europe

Site: Karwendel Mountains - Austria

Date: 2011 June 15

The total lunar eclipse of 15 June 2011 as seen in the evening sky of Karwendel mountain range at the border of Germany and Austria. At this longitude the eclipse was already started at moonrise and the totally eclipsed moon was near the horizon. See this view in a stunning time-lapse video. As noted by the photographer "The cloudy sky suddenly opened up during the period of totality and made an amazing experience on Alps. The city of Innsbruck in Austria is the cause of illumination on the clouds toward the south." Bernd Proschold/
