The Eclipse Between Us, by Muhammad Rayhan, Indonesia

Rayhan, Muhammad; IAU, OAE

Second place in the 2021 IAU OAE Astrophotography Contest, category Total lunar eclipse.

Total lunar eclipses belong to the rather spectacular celestial events and can be observed easily with and without a telescope. Here we see the stages of the total lunar eclipse of 31.1.2018 photographed in Indonesia: starting with the entry of the full moon disk into Earth's round umbra, the totality as Blood Moon, and the beginning of the Moon's exit from Earth's umbra until moonset.
