Total Lunar Eclipse over Seattle
Click here for full size original image
1st place
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.
