APOD: Total Lunar Eclipse (2022 Nov 10)

Post by APOD Robot » Thu Nov 10, 2022 5:11 am

Image Total Lunar Eclipse

Explanation: The beginning, middle, and end of a journey through planet Earth's colorful umbral shadow is captured in this timelapse composite image of a total lunar eclipse. Taken on November 8 from Kitt Peak National Observatory this eclipse's 1 hour and 25 minute long total phase starts on the right and finishes on the left. Reddened sunlight, scattered into the central shadow by Earth's dusty atmosphere produces the dramatic dark red hues reflected by the lunar disk. For this eclipse, additional reddening is likely due to scattering from ash lingering in the atmosphere after a large volcanic eruption in the southern Pacific earlier this year. Seen at the right and left, the Earth's shadow is still lighter along its edge though. That faint bluish fringe along the lunar limb is colored by sunlight filtered through Earth's stratospheric ozone layer.

The whole thing, less a couple of minutes at the very end where it got really low and went through some tree branches. This covers about four hours. Such a long totality- about an hour and a half. (Start at the center and spiral clockwise outward.)

Nice! But it's a fake: the moon didn't really follow that pleasing spiral path :ssmile:

It did if you live in magical Colorado, with its fine microbrews and assorted legal "products"!
