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.

|Notes:||This is a composite of 11 images. Cityscape was taken first with Canon 450D w/Tamron 17-50mm lens @17mm. Lens was switched to Canon 70-200mm lens @200mm to bring moon in closer for sequence of 10 frames as eclipse progressed.|
