Lunar Eclipse on the Moon

We've watched the shadow of the earth move across the moon during a lunar eclipse, but what would it look like if we were standing on the moon? We know now, thanks to this picture taken by the Japanese probe Kaguya on February 10th. Link

Terra is latin for Earth, not just 'soil' but the actual plant.

The official name of The Moon is The Moon, not 'Luna'.

If we can call a Moon Eclipse a 'Lunar Eclipse', then why not an Earth Eclipse a Terran Eclipse (or a Terrestrial Eclipse, etc.) ?
