Lunar Eclipse

This shot shows an early stage of a total Lunar eclipse. The shadow creeping up from the bottom of the image is caused by the Earth moving between the Sun and Moon. The really interesting bit was much later when the Moon was lit only by refracted light through the Earth's atmosphere, giving it a coppery-red hue - but I was heading for bed by then !
