Lunar Eclipse

by on Mar.06, 2007, under photography

We were lucky enough to get a really good look at the lunar eclipse on 3rd March here in Cape Town. I was able to get some fairly good pictures of it with my digital camera. They’re not amazing, but not bad for a digital camera with just 6x zoom. The first picture shows the moon going from the penumbra (the region where the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s rays) to the umbra (the region where the Earth blocks all direct sunlight). The second picture shows the moon entering totality and taking on a reddish hue, as the only light reaching its surface by this stage had been filtered through the Earth’s atmosphere.
