The eye catching LUNAR ECLIPSE photography


There are three basic types of lunar eclipses.

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse :
The Moon passes through Earth's penumbral shadow.
These events are of only academic interest because they are subtle and hard to observe.

Partial Lunar Eclipse :
A portion of the Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow.
These events are easy to see, even with the unaided eye.

Total Lunar Eclipse :
The entire Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow.
These events are quite striking due to the Moon's vibrant red color during the total phase (totality).

lunar eclipse phases :

New Moon > New Crescent > First Quarter > Waxing Gibbous > Full Moon  > Waning Gibbous > Last Quarter > Old Crescent > New Moon


The difference between a lunar eclipse and a solar eclipse :

A solar eclipse is an eclipse of the Sun. It happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. This is only possible when the Moon is in the New Moon phase. For more information. grab link
