Lunar Eclipse Composite Image


February 20, 2008's total Lunar eclipse really was something to see! It was a nice dark eclipse, with a rusty red coloration during totality. This image is a composite of 9 images taken from Youngstown, Ohio during the Lunar eclipse. The images were taken with an Olympus 8MP SLR with a 300mm equiv. telephoto lens. The time of each image is listed underneath in Universal time. The red coloration at totality comes from sunlight that has been refracted by the Earth's atmosphere. Enjoy!

This is gorgeous! Pending permission from owner I shall like to one day have it reproduced, place it high on a wall, and recall what transpired as I drove east on 46.

I won't have a problem with that! Actually, I have another website that I post any photography related stuff on at http://wdimaging.zenfolio.com Keep an eye out on this website for the eclipse pictures. They will be available as prints shipped to your door once I make sure they are up to print quality.

Nice job, Sean...

Would you allow my 6-year old daughter to include it in her "Learning Fair" project about the eclipse? We kept her up late and she made sketches of the shadow every 10 minutes until totality... Then we had to put her to bed!! Your picture would make for a nice comparison between her sketches and what it really looked like.

Certainly! You can reproduce the image if you'd like. If you want, I'll be putting up a full-resolution version on my photography website that oen can order framed prints of or just the printed picture.
