Every so often the moon passes right through Earth's shadow. When this happens, the moon is dimmed as the large circular shadow creeps across its surface. When completely obscured, the moon glows with a dull red, which is the reflected light from sunsets around the entire Earth. This is also one of the best times to capture the surrounding stars, as ordinarily the glow of the moon defeats the relatively faint stellar backdrop. 

This photo of a total Lunar Eclipse was captured 11/8/22 at around 3:30am MST, and was captured using two telescopes and two cameras, to maximize detail and color depth. 

The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing.
