  • Submitted a challenge entry Moonset Over Daffodil Fields
    The daffodil fields in Skagit Valley, Washington, are  not nearly as popular as the tulips that bloom a few weeks later. Here, seen almost edge-on, are two daffodil fields, rather subdued, and dominated by the poplar trees, hill, and moon in the background.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Total Lunar Eclipse over Seattle
    This image shows the first half of the total lunar eclipse in the early morning hours of December 10, 2011.

The fully eclipsed moon appears reddish because the Earth's atmosphere refracts (bends) sunlight into the the Earth's shadow, thereby allowing the sun to indirectly illuminate the totally eclipsed moon. At the same time, the Earth's atmosphere preferentially scatters the shorter wavelengths of sunlight (i.e. the blues), and thus more of the red light gets through.
