Hello,

 

Here is a picture of the July 16th Partial Lunar Eclipse that comes out of a series of 1400 images I used for a TimeLapse.

The purpose of this TimeLapse was to “materialise” Earth shadow. We usually don’t realise that the Earth umbra extends 1’400’00 km (870’000 mi) into outer space (source:wiki) because we generally can’t see it. But Earth shadow is revealed during a Lunar Eclipse.

 

Seen from Fribourg/Switzerland
The sky was veiled with cirrus clouds but I am very happy that the phenomenon was still visible.

 

Kind regards,
Nicolas SOLDATI

Nice video in your link!  Glad you got to see it despite the clouds.

Thank you Tom. I wanted to do something different. We often represent the shadow moving on the lunar disc. But actually it is the Moon that moves into earth shadow.
