APOD: All Sky Moon Shadow (2024 Apr 27)

Post by APOD Robot » Sat Apr 27, 2024 4:05 am

Image All Sky Moon Shadow

Explanation: If the Sun is up but the sky is dark and the horizon is bright all around, you might be standing in the Moon's shadow during a total eclipse of the Sun. In fact, the all-sky Moon shadow shown in this composited panoramic view was captured from a farm near Shirley, Arkansas, planet Earth. The exposures were made under clear skies during the April 8 total solar eclipse. For that location near the center line of the Moon's shadow track, totality lasted over 4 minutes. Along with the solar corona surrounding the silhouette of the Moon planets and stars were visible during the total eclipse phase. Easiest to see here are bright planets Venus and Jupiter, to the lower right and upper left of the eclipsed Sun.

Is that Cassiopeia's W near center?

Probably not near center, but Cassiopeia should be in the picture.

Venus is in Pisces, close to the border of Aries, Jupiter is in Aries. Cassiopeia is a good distance north of them, but not so far that it shouldn't be in the APOD.

I definitely couldn't spot the familiar W.

Cassiopeia is in the picture. Look at the annotated version mentioned in the explanation.

The image is a another masterpiece by Tunç Tezel. APOD should be able to spell his name correctly.

I didn't notice there was an annotated version! And yes, it seems I guessed correctly.

This image really showcases just how tiny this phenomenon really looks to the unaided eye. Still, though, it's a great image!

Actually, to the unaided eye, it looks much larger. What this picture illustrates is just how small it actually is, despite the powerful illusion of it appearing much larger when viewed live (just like the Moon looks much larger than its numerically small apparent angle would suggest it should.)

Hmm. Thanks for the perspective!

So is he from Turkey? That's the Turkey flag, right?

The Moon and the Sun are both really small in the sky. Two lunar eclipse photos bring out the ridiculously tiny angular size of the Moon.

In its simplicity, this image is both artistic and scientific. the colors of the Moon catch the eye.
I would like to understand a little more what the magenta color of the central moon is due to. I will check Marcella's blog. Perhaps it is a Moon low on the horizon with this coloration that the author lightened to make the color effect more visible.

"Magenta color of the central moon"? The tiny moon I see here doesn't look magenta at all. These are some variations of magenta:

Indeed! I thought I was still commenting on the moons post that was one line before this one.
Of this image I love the natural colors of the sky and the orange glow of the horizon!
