Lunar Eclipse Over Hungary

Photo: Tamas Ladanyi (TWAN)

Photographer Tamas Ladanyi took this fantastic composite series of the Full Moon over the springtime landscape of Tihany, Hungary. The small pic above doesn't do it justice, so head on over to APOD for the larger photo:

As it climbed into the clear sky, the Moon just grazed the dark, umbral shadow of planet Earth in the year's first partial lunar eclipse. The partial phase, seen near the top of this frame where the lunar disk is darkened along the upper limb, lasted for less than 27 minutes. Composited from consecutive exposures, the picture presents the scene's range of natural colors and subtle shading apparent to the eye.
