RED MOON

My experience of the eclipse was so wonderous that I totally forgot about the “vampire hours” I stayed up to capture it. I enjoyed it tremendously and time seemed to just whiz on by. I used a Canon 20D at prime focus with an ISO equivalent of 200. The camera was attached to my Takahashi FC-76. Various exposure times were tripped by remote shutter release. The images in the montage cover from about 2:35AM-6:25AM Mountain time the morning of August 28th.

  1. Weird related thinking…
    A white retroreflective screen, disc-shaped, the size of Earth’s umbra, at the moon’s distance, would show us a continuous view
    of the subtle variations and colorations in Earth’s shadow (a continuous “Total Screen Eclipse”!).
    Now and then there would be curious greenish and bluish concentric “rays” and spots in it.
    Perhaps they (the greenish-bluish spots and “rays”) are extended projections of the optical phenomenon known as the “Green Ray”?
    Is there some sort of “focal point” in the centre of a totally eclipsed object?
    Is something like this ever observed or photographed?
    Or is it only theoretically possible? (the experiment with a small opaque shiny globe and the shadow of it).
    In the centre of the globe’s “Umbra” there’s a small starlike spot, with small diffuse “rays” around it.

  2. I missed this month eclipse. But no sweat!
    All I needed to do is visit LPOD and ouila!
    There she be! The beauty of LPOD is
    that the LPOD community is very broadly
    spread out around the world.

    When future Lunar probes are launched,
    it may be possible that two unexpected surprises
    may be the result. The first non-astronaut images
    of the elevated dust phenomenon and perhaps
    green flashes if cameras are aimed at
    Earth for atmospheric studies from Lunar orbit.
    Althought these are not placed high on the Lunar probes
    agenda, the possibility exists that these surface events
    opportunistically present themselves for imaging.
